Hard to Swallow

  1. There wasn't much activity on the beach this morning, but the swallows were out. I took this hand held with the 80-400 mounted on my D200. These birds are just too fast to capture in flight.
    Comments welcome as always.:smile:

  2. Couple of Beauties Ed.

  6. Hi Gary,
    Thank you. The beach was pretty quiet this morning. :smile:
  7. Hi Andy,
    Thanks, I know what you mean about speed and making one dizzy LOL :biggrin:
  8. I finally saw one resting Thursday around me. Only problem, I was not at home. I had no camera & I was on top of a horse riding a lesson. ;-) Oh yes that's three problems.....

    Great little shot of such sweet & fast flying birds. :) Maybe if I hang out near where they hang out (under the freeway overpass) I'll get lucky one of these days....... No, don't want to photograph them there. But I might figure out where they hang out at other times.....

    Thanks for sharing

  9. Hi Juanice,

  10. Hi Gale,
    I have been trying to get one in flight for several years. Maybe one of these days I will get lucky LOL.:biggrin:
  11. Hi lil,
    Thanks for the nice words. I hope you have success in capturing a few shots of these. :biggrin:
