  1. these are brilliant. it is not often you can get above Swallows Roy but you managed it very well from the high bridge. Have a good week ahead.

  2. Well done! They fly so fast that photographing them is practically impossible with my little camera. They are the most beautiful birds though - wonderful colours and always elegant and graceful.

  4. Fabulous series Roy. Not often I see them photographed from above. Didn't realise they were so colourful.

  5. Never an easy pastime but you did well. I've tried capturing tree swallows in flight and it's extremely difficult and have had no luck.

  8. ...love these. The second is so cool. You can see all the primaries and secondaries--very cool--and hard to do.

    1. It gets a little frustrating, but when you see some results it makes it worth it Simon.

  16. This sequence reminded me the cover of a disc from Mike Oldfield...
    Great shots, Roy!
