    Hey guys, so this is my second attempt at taking a picture of a chickadee taking flight. I have taken all the advice giving to me (lowered shutter speed/ISO, stopped down aperture), but I still don't think the quality up to par yet... Let me know what you think...

    250mm (55-250mm lens)

    Nice shot, the only comment I would have is that it looks like it was shot "looking up" at the bird and from the angle you have, you can really only see one wing and a bit of the other. If you are going to continue at this (good project), you might try and get both wings in the picture and maybe up the shutter speed a bit, this one is a bit fuzzy around the tail feathers - yes I know, you would think that 1/1000 would do it, but it is still a bit fuzzy. I am looking forward to your future efforts.

    Cheers,

    WesternGuy

    Thanks for the C&C! I was shooting at 1/2000sec the other day, but everyone on the forum told me to go slower so I'm confused now....lol
