Its getting close to the end of the season now, and almost time to really switch things up. Its been pretty interesting watch these nest and then have the young ones learn to fly. Now almost ready to fly south and the skies will soon seem very empty.
I saw the thread about the dedication to getting that perfect Kingfisher shot, not sure about obsessive but he got to know his subjects probably almost as well as they knew him. Maybe its more appreciation. Swallows amaze me, and the more I'm around them the more I learn about them, and maybe thats what I'm getting back.
Last weekend they were starting to gather in giant flocks, hundreds going by at a time.
Theres one thing I did learn that other birds don't seem to do as much, and thats they watch us while we're watching them. I would have never realized it without taking so many shots, but its there, you can see it in there eyes.
So enjoy the flyby shot.

I agree - this is a wonderful image, and one that is difficult to get!

Just wish I could get a lot more, and the males which have a lot more color. I saw a lot more females this year than males, just not sure why. Very social birds even across Tree and Barn swallows, which from what I've read is very true even on there flights down south.
Have to see If I can find an Avocet this year. the shore birds stay a lot longer and the cooler weather sometimes slow them down a bit, and I think they start stockpiling food for the flights as well.
Thanks for the compliments, I appreciate them very much.I must say though it was all the great shots here that showed me it actually could be done at all.

Great flight shot of an Eastern Kingbird (note white band on tip of tail).

I think your right, I was shooting swallows most of the day, but a Kingbird was flying about at the time.
Gives me a good reason to keep shooting Swallows then, thanks !
