    Good morning all, yet another pictuer of a very fast flying bird, my rate of success with this swift is way below the Barn Swallow, C&C welcome and thank you for looking

    Great capture.
    Looks like a painting.
    Very well done.
  9. Excellent! Swifts are a real challenge (I always think swallows are sparrows pretending to be swifts :biggrin:) and this is the sort of shot I dream of taking.

  10. What an awesome shot! I can definitely appreciate how hard that is to get! Nice going.
