20 Fantastic Pictures of Birds Flying

Nature is never an old subject when it comes to photography. It’s constantly changing and moving, and it’s hard to duplicate its natural beauty in the man-made world. Birds in particular are very beautiful, especially in flight. Usually it takes a fast shutter speed, telephoto lens, and some great focusing techniques to catch them just right. Then again, sometimes it just takes pointing whatever you have in your hands and hoping it turns out. Here are 20 fantastic pictures of birds flying that turned out great.

If you really like birds, then you should check out our hummingbird pictures and pigeon pictures.

    Fly high , that is why mostly people love to be a bird if they have a chance ,to be free and wild. I personally love how it was taken patience is a must for these.Thank you and more power from Edmonton Photographer.

    I took my first photo of a bird in flight not too long ago, it was almost pure luck and a bunch of post-processing. I’m really excited about how it turned out, and pretty proud of the photo.

    I love shooting wildlife with the camera and flying birds is a wonder subject to capture.

    My fav shot this year is a hen duck landing right next to me at our local zoo (http://500px.com/photo/6148236).

    Nice pictures!!!, taking picture is easy now a days with the new technologies, a digital camera or a smart phone can make it. But taking an image which speaks to the world is not an easy task. I have seen this kind of photography in your work, keep it up and all the best
