My image shows a hoopoe arriving with food for the chicks. The challenge was not to photograph the bird. The challenge was to put that image in place I had in my mind. The light was poor early in the morning and therefor I had to handle with longer shutter speed. So my idea was to try an image, where the head of the bird is completely sharp while the wings are in-motion unsharpness. And believe me it was not easy and took some tries, because the hoopoe used different ways to fly in. But at least I was not unhappy with the result.
