*** Mini Challenge #387 - Bird in Flight ***

I pick a popular photo theme which is however beyond me: Bird in Flight.

It is a nice and challenging theme and I don't have any example due to not being good at it, so I apologize for not providing any examples.

You might want to let us know camera model, shutter-speeds, f-stops and ISO-numbers: others may be able learn from that!

The challenge begins now, and will end on Monday, May 20 at Midnight US PDT.

In many parts of the world this Monday will be a (religious or even state) holiday: Pentecost. So I thought to include Monday in the challenge period. I will do my best to host the challenge, however during the long weekend I will be off-line taking part in a bike tour. The last time I won a MC I passed the baton in spite of serious encouragement from the community's part, so I do not try to avoid doing my duty this time, but I ask for understanding for my absence during the coming weekend, when I will not be able to comment.  I hope it will not be a problem. Also please note my location's being in the CET (Central European) time zone.


The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images, but please try to put your entries within a 'single' post.

Images beyond the three entries can be marked as "exhibition":

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please remember to change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge #387"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk * next to the title of the image. (It might be commented anyway so this is a mild rule.)


Please embed your image in the thread. As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

Main rule and general guideline: Have fun!!
