A photo shouldn't require much explanation and the efforts or the methods don't matter, only the final result.
But what chrisc said first goes quite well with my intention.
I was trying to reduce the idea of a bird in flight to the bare essentials, and the moment of the day added to the mood.
A perfectly exposed bird and sharp bird would have been one in millions of similar shots and wouldn't have added anything to what I was trying to get here. And if you think the haiku reference is a stretch, take a look at this: http://tearsandlaughterat90.blogspot.com/2012/06/bird-named-haiku-1.html
The compact camera (slower focus, higher exposure) made it even less clear than I thought it will be but I like it this way more as you can't say for sure what it is.
If it works it's a different story, but the shot is quite close to what I wanted.
PS. I just needed a title one in order to post so don't think about it more than needed
PPS. and if you don't like it underexposed I added a version with 2 extra stops
