[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
I have captured this picture of flying 'African Spoonbill' (Platalea alba) in Kruger National Park. I always prefer either clean; undisturbed or dramatic (sky) background for flying bird picture. It was taken during our morning g game drive. So small eyes and difficult to focus. But If you have confidence then you can touch the goal easily ;-)

African Spoonbill has a relation with Ibis species. They are found in Southern African countries such as Kenya, Botswana, South Africa etc, and Madagascar.

Hi Sri, my neighbour in the gallery today,
Beautiful shot as always from you, with perfect sharpness, contrast, exposure and shutter speed. The way how you managed to capture the flying spoonbill in front of the clear blue sky is amazing. Perfect start for a day. :-)
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Srikumar,

Another perfectly captured flight shot from you. Despite the small eyes, you have managed to capture the eye contact. Very nice!!

Hello Srikumar,
Awesome inflight shot of this beautiful Spoonbill. The white balance is right on the button, rendering lovely natural color tones. I really like the eye contact you made while the clean sky blue BG is a real bonus. Exceptional detail and just the right amount of exposure. Great work!!

Hello Srikumar

Great in-flight photography of the African Spoonbill,
wonderful blue sky of the background, beautiful light,
great focus, sharpness, and details, TFS


Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the African Spoonbill in flight. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
