My definition of a snapshot...

Posted by
Bertrand Duhamel (Roxton Pond, Quebec, Canada) on 22 March 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

An Eastern Kingbird in action.

I tried for a long time to photograph these birds at the precise moment they snap flying insects but they're so fast...
My patience paid off... i finally got a decent shot last summer.

It's backlighted, grainy... not a top quality masterpiece, but it's mine... ;-))

Wow. Impressionant Bertrand, pour la netteté de la photo et puis aussi de l'avoir avec un insecte dans le bec à moitié ouvert, c'est encore plus fort ! J'aime ces ailes bien ouvertes au vent, c'est très beau !
