I got a few Swallow shots before they start to head off for their wintering grounds.
They are nice, but that first one is a proper goodun... I coulndt even begin to take something like that I don't think!
What shutter speed is require to get such a spot on amount of movement?
Beautiful shots of these lovely birds such fast little birds too
That 1st one is such a nice shot, nice to see something other then a bird on a branch etc. for a person like me who wouldn't know a cat from a elephant it's nice.
Bees knees, Shaggy! Great stuff.
Here's the Exif from the first shot, but I must say first of all, for me it's more luck than judgement.
Shot in Aperture priority mode and f5.6 for the fastest speed for the given light.
Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) 1/640 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop ƒ/5.6
ISO Speed Ratings 400
Flash Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
Focal Length 400 mm
That first shot is Nat Geo material - great timing!
amazing stuff glen, you are really putting THAT L lens to very good use......!! The detail and of course timing is perfect for all these images, especially as mentioned above that 1st image is brilliant.......!!
Great detail on all of them but that first shot is a stunner!
