About the Image(s)

I visited Seletar aerospace park last Sunday (12/19/2021) and took many images of Blue-tailed Bee-eaters (small birds) hunting their prey. Although the bright grass background distracts the captures, all bird photographers were active and happy with the active birds.

Great capture with the insect about to be devoured. Sharp image with nice background color. Vibrancy about the head could be increased so that we cold see the eye a bit better.   Posted: 01/07/2022 13:01:46

Wow - that's a double good catch. One for the bird and with this photo for you too. It looks all wonderful sharp in great colors.   Posted: 01/09/2022 02:14:37

Fascinating shot. I'm amazed you can see membranes in the insect' wing. What shutter speed were you at?   Posted: 01/09/2022 15:56:20

Thanks for your kind comment. I used Sony A9, Sony G 200-600mm lens, ISO 1600, 200-500@600mm, f/9, 1/3200s, post processed with TOPAZ.   Posted: 01/12/2022 06:58:45

Fine image that tells a story in addition to showing the bird in full pose. The eye could be brought out since eyes are so compelling in an image. What was the shutter speed? Well done!   Posted: 01/12/2022 06:53:18

great image, the only I would suggest, is to brighten the birds a little.   Posted: 01/13/2022 14:24:37
