Which images do you prefer most birds in flight or birds that are perched?
Share with me the reasons you chose your answer?

I prefer birds in flight, because I like the challenge involved in photographing them in motion.

Thanks in advance!

BIF for me. In flight birds are way more lifelike and active, and the sense of accomplishment of pulling off a great BIF shot is also a consideration.

To me, that is tough to say. I do appreciate the challenge it takes to get a great bird in flight picture. On the other hand, I also can appreciate the challenge of finding a rare or very skittish bird and taking the time and effort to pattern the bird, get close to it, and take a high quality photo. Some birds look just as good plumage wise in a flight shot as they do in a static shot. BUT, to me, I love ducks in flight but I can not pass up a high quality sitting image of many of the highly colorful ducks. I love seeing the sharp crisp details in their feathers accented by the brilliant colors. Not sure I can pick either way. :D

In-flights have to be my favorite because of the challenge involved getting a great image.

Both!

Flight shot, IMHO, it is quite straightforward...eith​er you get it or don't. It's challenging to get sharp shots though.
Perch shots, on the other hand, you have to get the best angle, lighting, and obstacle-free environment while trying to get close to a possible skittish bird.

I will take photos of both. But my favorite shot is the shot that you don't normally get to see.

My favorite birds are perching birds (song birds) so I prefer stationary.
