That are 3 very nice phots Harish, like the last one best. How much cropping did you have to do?

Thank you Heinrich.
I did about 50% cropping of these shots as they are very small birds.

Amazing captures of some small and very active birds! Wonderful detail and tonal range too.

Hi

Your second picture looked somehow like I had seen this before.
I wrecked my brain and then suddenly it came to me. This is a classic Chinese way of painting swallows in flight.
Just a bit of trivia. But I thought you might be interested to know, you captured something the Chinese have an eye for.

Greetings

PS: I have seen this in China not only on porcelain.
