1. An interesting sight...thousands of swallows circling and darting all over the place, above a series of canals. Must have been some bugs up there to keep them so active...

Good ones Ian. Seems whenever I try to shoot swallows it's in Ontario and only one bird that is flying by like a fighter jet. A flock would make it so much easier. ;-)a The Kingfisher is terrific with good detail and perfect exposure. Then of course coming to Florida we always need to catch the requisite alligator. Well done my friend.

LOL thanks Don. Yeah, shooting a thousand swallows was easier than shooting 1 :)
