I Went to the animal park in Kerkrade ( Gaiapark). This is in the Netherlands,there was a bird show and I did manage to get this picture, out of several bad ones,it is quite difficult to get a decent shot from a bird in flight....

Sharpend,levels adjustment and resizing.

Hi Leon,
a nice inflight capture with good sharp focus, it is a pity his wings are clipped on the left though and there is a slight blur at the bottom. I am very intrigued by the dinosaurs roaming in the background ;o)
thanks for sharing,

Olá Leon

Hi Leon
You captured the bird so well. Her eye was cleared even she was flying. The light shined on her wings so pretty.

Not your fault Leon, but I have a hard time relating to an eagle flying amongst palm trees & dinosaurs,sorry.You certainly captured its facial expression well, though it may have been worthwhile trying to get both wings into the scene,as you say it's difficult to capture a bird in flight & you did not do to badly with this image,keep on trying to capture them, it takes practice & your certainly on the right road.

Hi Leon

For a perfect shot, I would have tried to include the wingtips of the bird, but I know this isn't easy, on a fast moving subject. Good panning & sharpness on the head of the avian subject. Congratulations!

Hello Leon,

Excellent PP work, beautiful colors, perfect lighting.
Congratulations and TFS
