Wow...what gorgeous swallows Steve! Magnificent capture of these two beauties!

Thanks, Mike! They are small but really striking.

Lovely image, Mike. The colors and texture of the pond nicely complement the geese.

Steve these are beautiful and very different Swallows to anything I've seen
very striking birds and beautifully photographed.

Are you over that way now? I see you have posted a few others from that continent

Thanks, Richard! No, I'm still in US. Right now it's hot and sticky each day and we're in the pre-migration doldrums. So I decided to go back to look at old photos from trips to Africa. Naive me shot then in jpg. With a new computer and an upgrade in Lightroom, I decided to go back to see if I could do a better job cleaning up the files. Man, do I wish I had my current gear on those trips!

I see what's going on here, Richard...you're training these little guys to be super cute! Whatever you are doing works extremely well!:eek: This shot in the rain is truly an adorable photo.

Beautiful, natural scene, Mike!
Love the peaceful mood and reflections in the river.
Wonderfully composed.

Thank you kindly for your very complimentary, kind remarks, Jimmy. They certainly are appreciated.

Many thank, Steve. I always enjoy and appreciate your encouraging comments. When I took this shot, I really wasn't expecting much out of it. When it came up in Lightroom, I sort of thought it had a bit mood to it. So, with a little tweaking hear and there, I ended up with this image. It ain't great, but it's a keeper.

Thanks Mike & Steve for your kind comments

Mike, super cuteness is something they seem to carry with them :-) And they sure do it well.
My training hasn't yet got them to not hide behind twigs yet :-P
