This evening I went to shoot the tree swallows flying but ended up with much more. What a crazy, productive time!

All shot with the Olympus EM1 Mark 2 with 300F4 and MC14 teleconverter.




Here's a tree swallow shot, they were everywhere.






Then an Osprey flew by with nesting material....

Then I saw the Avocets mating....




She's ready, but he's being cool






Then he started to spray water....






Then he mounted her.....






And they're all lovey dovey (avocety?)

Here they come...






On the attack....

Those are the days that put a smile on my face and somehow make all those not fruitful days a little easier to take. Very nice series!

Swallows, schmallows...no disrespect to them but you sure made good use of those other opportunities Bob!

Looks like a wild and wacky time but you handled all of it well and come home with many keepers!

Well done; thanks for posting.

Oh boy, you hit the jackpot at SJWS! Every time I've been there have only seen a few birds here and there. Maybe I need to observe better.

Very nice series, Bob, and that Oly combo is working very well for you.
