Wanted to try my luck with SIFs, but this time with barn swallows :). Most of these are 50% crop. Shot with my aging but still reliable T1i and 400 f/5.6.

Nice shots! These guys are hard to get in flight. Pretty sure the first one is a cliff swallow.

Thanks, part of the success (if i can call it a success) is to know which swallows will go closer to me, and I noticed some pattern. Out of a few hundred pics, these are the only ones I liked :)

Thanks Jason. A friend told me it is a cliff swallow but I thought it was a female barn swallow, he was right after all :)
