Flight Feathers

Male Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) in flight, with the bushes behind being in shade this little finch stood out nicely giving such a sweet feather display.

I started trying my hand at taking birds in flight last year at my local RSPB reserve at Lochwinnoch.

This year I changed my technique using a full manual set up.

 

Manual shutter speed, aperture and focus.
