    Don't tell me Jon this was from the garden too?

    F/8, so in old money f/13, looks ok, is it a big crop? I would go for less above more below to fly into.

    Not garden this time Steve, 50m down the road directly above the reedbed. (Just realised I had a better one to post!)

    Are you serious... A better one... You are killing it with these erratic speedsters. Light just a little high, but still... TFS

    Jonathan, super nice capture.

    I agree with Steve that moving up a hair would be swell. Also, I just yearn for a little closer look at the bird itself and the details, esp against a blue sky... in other words, more bird in frame and less sky.

    Congrats and TFS.

    Quite a nice flight frame of this barn swallow. The catchlight in the eye is right on.
