Tree Swallow
Posted By: Edicon, 06-09-2009, 12:03 PM

This is the first time that I have shoot this bird. I'm lucky enough most of them are not camera shy and allow me to shoot them within 10ft or closer, except for the 4th one. They are very graceful when they fly. Taken with the Km and sigma 100-300mm.









Cheers,
Conrad

Exceptional series of images. Yes, swallows a particularly beautiful and graceful in flight. That is the Sigma EX 100-300 f4... right?

Some stuning shots. I particularly like 2 for the angle of the body and the matching branch; Also N0-3 for the wonderful bokeh.
