I was at the Zoo and there were some Pigeons flying around from time to time. It's pretty tight there and it was hard to isolate any of the flying birds.

Good title, involves the viewer much more. Nice catch.

Incredibly difficult to get the dang things in focus when on the move... AF?
Nice shot!

I think the crop is off a little. I know how difficult it is to take flying bid shots though.(making their wings sort of stop in time) Besides that I really do like it. Good job.

oooh this is kick ass. I wish you put more into the post processing though to get rid of some the grain in the background. Very nicely captured though i wont knock you off for the slightly oof bird because i can appreciate the difficulty of replicating this moment.

Wonderful Monet-ish people-bokeh! And very fun with the pigeon-eye view of the scene.
