Good timing on this shot Yves. He looks pretty impressive here against the mottled background with the tail feathers flexed. Really nice capture of the moment and overall a very appealing image too.

Thank you very much Debra. You are right. about he was adjusting its balance but I did not timed it at all. I was ready to shoot him in a standard pose and he made that move about at the same time I was shooting.

I love the sense of movement in this shot, Yves. Nice job.

Thank Jane. The bird was not having that pose at the moment I was ready to shoot. I think he fell out of balance and made that move to correct at the exact moment I shooted. Kind of a gift from Mother Nature.

You are right about the pose Yves it certainly showcases how beautiful the tail is. It looks like the kingbird was adjusting his footing on the branch and you timed it perfectly. Nicely captured Yves.

Description
Throughout the season some shots shows usual bird a very special way. My usual shot at the eastern kingbird shows the bird slim line in black and white. Here it shows its beautyful tail and some grey/brown colour of the wing feathers.
