As previously noted, it was a good day near the Swallow Tree.

Hey Bill we sure did get lots of shots of those swallows. Great shooting. Which lens did you use on these.

Thanks!

We got some sun today, after rain this morning. Of course it only happens when I am indoors at work ....

We sure did Jim, this will be a spot to watch the next couple of months for sure. These were all D7100 with the 400 f2.8. I did some with the D800/80-400 combo, haven't processed those yet but will.

I knew that these look familiar, very nice work Bill. It was a fun day for sure.

Thanks, Louie. Yeah, when you are standing right next to each other, a few just may look familiar :wink:

Awesome capture, but my fav is #4. A bit of digital work will get you that wingtip back :)

Thanks! If I was going to do anything to this I would add some canvas to the right and give the bird more room that way. The wing tip does not bother me much, a Nat Geo photographer once told me not worry, a clipped wing tip adds "tension" to the image. We had a showing here at the Burke Museum a couple of years ago of international bird images. Over 80% of them had clipped wings.
