Thats what I think it is, so if someone could confirm the ID I would really appreciate it. There not the best quality, I did not realize I shot them handheld at 1/125( oops ). I will have to go back to this spot and take some better shots. Thanks for looking .

Not bad at all Chris. I don't know what type of bird it is, but it is captured well. I love the profile shot and the OOF backgrounds makes him shine. Nice capture...

These are nice shots, Chris. Especially handheld at 1/125. I particularly liked image #1.
When I looked up Northern Rough-winged Swallow in my "Stokes Field Guide to Birds" I see a photo of a bird that looks very much like your capture. So I'd say you made the correct ID.

Good shots. You must have a steady hand to take these handheld at 1/125. :-)


Best regards

Really great shots, at 1/125 shutter speed?! What lens did you use? #1 is especially sharp. I'd be thrilled with these.

Looks great to me and at that slow shutter speed. Well done.

Two very nice shots here Chris. Great exposure and color, BG and detail in both. I think I like the first one more for the progile of the bird...super composition and I would be tempted to remove the lone oof branch behind the bird. Not sure how hard that would be but a combimation of the patch and cloning tools in PS would probably be the way to go. Excellent in any case!
