    These capture are a little weird. Not the crops I would like but I caught them at the corner of the frame. Had to do some extending of the background in the last one just to get some space on the left and bottom.

    Great in flights Brent. I know how hard it is to get these little birds in flight.

    Those are good. They are hard enough to follow with the naked eye. I'm always amazed when people post them in flight.

    Swallows are tough to shoot ... that's pretty good AF.

    I was at a farm and barn swallows were swooping all over the place and very close to me. I had my 40-150mm and spent 15-20min shooting. I thought how great this was that I was going to get some amazing shots. It was like shooting fish in a barrel. When I took a look at the shots when I got home most of them were just out of focus, actually slight motion blur. That's when I realized I didn't pay as close attention to my settings as I thought. I was 1/1000 under what I should have shot. There could have been some stunning shots but I was only able to salvage those two. You just can't shoot swallows at 1/1600.
