Sometimes not every good image is a perfect one. In this case only one bird is completely in frame, the others are just partially in and only one is sharp. This is what happens when you are working at trying to photograph a flock of birds in flight. I’m not sure how photographers who get an entire flock in focus do it but I’m going to keep trying! The only way I got this image at all was to focus on the one bird and just follow it.
Locked on and panning; swivel at the waist or something like that.
But why do I really like this image? It’s the positioning of the birds in the frame. That appeals to me for some reason. What do you think of it?
