    Nice catch! That's a tough one to capture. I like his expression. Seems determined to go somewhere! A favorite.

    Perfectly poised on the one-third line. Great stop action shot.

    Astute observation about his granary, ysal.

    Great timing! The bird is sharp enough in my opinion and well placed. I see his granary where all his acorns are stored!

    You have succeeded well in focusing to the flying bird. Well composed. In my favorites.

    Shame it wasn't a touch sharper would of been a beauty.

    Wow... Now that is good timing. I think you should have applied some unsharp mask to this one. The birds head is a little fussy, I think the focus is a tad off (I can't blame you) which distracts from the impact of this photo. Well done for capturing this moment though.

    aoc46: Thanks for your comments, but I must say that"awkward"and "scrunched" seem rather puzzling impressions of a bird's natural flight position. Trust me . . . I didn't place him in that position - LOL!

    Great capture and good use of the Rule of Thirds, though the bird's pose seems a little awkward - sort of scrunched. Like the colors of the green and black background.

    I tried a version of the branch cropped out; it looked unbalanced.

    Nice capture of the woodpecker in flight. Not quite tack sharp. Consider cropping/cloning out the branch on the left.
