    Default House martin (Delichon urbicum)

    House martins collecting mud for nest building. Image captured on the Isle of Mull. Procapture mode was used. Composition is a little less than aesthetic but I think it served the purpose of capturing the action.
    (There has been a recent update in firmware for focusing accuracy and also a revision of camera settings for in flight shots. This was taken prior to update and revised settings but nevertheless I don't think it is too bad).

    I like this one better Jon.....The two birds on the ground fill the frame and tell the story...The bird in flight is sharper, and appears to be more in focus, than the last image...
