I don't know why, but I find swallows very hard to catch in the right light.
You did a great job with the focus and the POV.
Wonderful details in all the different kinds of wings.
TFS. : )

Hello Pam, what a beautiful image. The crop and composition are just about right. It seems that all was with you looking at the image information, which has given a fantastic sharpnes (but also your skills of course)

What a charming capture!
I really love the way this welcome swallow looks...it's much more colorfull that the common ones here!
I gues you were a little lucky to catch it sitting there so patiently and letting you shoot it so nicely, with not even all the zoom ;)
The composition here is outstanding! I raelly love the sharp details here - on every edge or line or feather on its body - and also that superb BG.
The light is also wonderful and the exposure spot-on!
Very nicely framed and presented as well.
Bravo and TFS

can't wait to see them fly again, I guess I have enough of the snow already. This shot is fabulous, very well composed with this lovely neutral BG which shows of the swallow very well. POV, sharpness and details are fabulous.

What an interesting name: "Welcome Swallow". It makes me wonder if there is a story behind it.
It is a pretty bird and you have done a super job showing that. No nits here!
Looks like I'm fresh out of points...;-( expect some tomorrow...;-)

Wow! You got really close on this very small swallow, an amazing feat even though you had a 100-400mm lens. Excellent details and natural colors, the soft OOF back is th eicing on the cake Pam. :)
