A week ago the Oceanside Marine Study Area on Long Island, New York was full of tree swallows. Yesterday there were none so I guess the ones in this set are not the ones that will stay the summer. There were some puffy clouds passing and you can tell the ones with cloud cover by the shutter speed. All of the photos are cropped a bit for composition. Iím determined to do a head shot so please place a spell of invisibility on me.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Delightful look to these Morris and you now reminded me that fill flash on these is most helpful to get light into that dark area of their eyes! Great color and detail, fine work on the set!

Great set Morris.
Love the detail and the sheen on the feathers that the fill flash brings out.
4, 7 and 8 are my favourites, those last two are just super pics.

Thank you Karl,

The fill is also very good for the iridescence
