For me the effort was electrifying....
To try and master the technique

I went outside to shoot this by the bird feeder and it was challenging. As anyone knows who photographs Chickadees, they are very speedy. I estimated when he was going to fly from the feeder to a tree and used a fast shutter speed to catch the action of the wings and tail feathers outspread.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
