I photographed these tree swallows at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area on Long Island, New York in late April. The fog was starting to burn off as I took these yet light was still low. It was fun watching them dart around the park and of cause a challenge to track them in flight as there so fast and maneuverable.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Morris, I noticed you used 800 speed on your settings, can you tell me if using 1600 might have given you some difference at all or would that have made no difference on the wings you think?

Just thinking out loud....

Another great set, Morris.
And getting two flying swallows in the same frame while using a long lens- man, you sure know what you're doing .
