Ever since my first swallow pics I just got hooked by these beautiful fellas. For weeks I tried to get a decent shot of the violet-green and finally it happened yesterday. Not the best time of the day I wanted because the sun has set, so I have to shoot at ISO 800 and shutter speed of 1/90. I was just lucky this fella posed for me :)

And a heated discussion from these 2 barns :)

They're all great images but the interaction between the barns is really nice.

I LOVE the Violets! I have them here, and so hard to get them still!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Great shots Jo, I don't know how y'all do it.......I see them all the time, but they're zipping around like there's no tomorrow. I never see them perched on anything.

The violet-greens are beauties; I'd like to see them in brighter sun, but well done nevertheless.

Thanks Sharon, they do get tired, the key is to know when and where they perch when they take a breather.

Thanks Al, that is my wish also and hopefully it will be fulfilled soon :)

LoL, thanks Fee. The formula is 1% persistence and 99% luck :) Just kidding, honestly, at the end of the day they get tired and eventually they perch. And I think when they are tired, they couldn't care less about the people around them, they just want to rest :)

Joe, what beautiful exposure, detail, IQ and poses on the violet-greens.
The Barn Swallow is a classic shot.

Good shooting my dear man!
