Beautiful work, especially the first two.

Oh you are so modest, Heinrich. Lovely images of Pixie and Dixie, the barn swallows. I had to give them names. I really like the last image because the bokeh of clouds really evokes a sense of flight and delight.

Excellent mid-flight captures Heinrich - the backgrounds really make the grade of compelling for this kind of shot. Well done!

Hi Marc and thank you. Some times one can sort of choose the background in this type of shooting and some times one has to get just plain lucky.

Take care,

Sir, I had no ideea Bigma can perform so good.
I guess some of us can really bend the light...

Beyond IQ I like the way the birdies are pictured. So intimate and cute...
A real "pair".
