Another good picture and great light phoebe. I like the sharp detail and pattern shown on the leading edge of both wings (near the shoulders)contrasted to the blurred appearance of the wing tips. Were you shooting at a slightly slower shutter speed on purpose to get the blur compared to some of your other flight shots?

Hidden inside "imagination" is the root word magi (yes as in the three wise men of the nativity story). The magi were considered to be wise men or magicians. Before you snap that next photo, explore your imagination and you will capture more memorable "magi"cal moments in your photography.... Tom in Iowa

Tom, I had been shooting static shots and the bird surprised me by taking off too soon. The motion blur wasn't planned.
