Excellent series, I would compare these guys to swallows. They are fast and acrobatic and you captured them. I am still trying to get some decent shots of them.

Fantastic. I had a guided trip planned to see them but it got cancelled. Have to wait until next year. Beautiful set!!!!!

Thank you Ed. Hope you get there next year, you'll have a big time.

Great set Steve. You exposed those whites and darks very well.
I have such a hard time with that.

Thanks Jeremy. As with all black and white birds it's a balancing act. Usually takes a bit of push and pull in post.

Thank very much Ron. I'm sure glad they have some size to them, Swallows make me a bit crazy(er).
