Fly Catching (20)

Hi Folks , today I have this in-flight image of a tree swallow making runs along the river to catch flies , I would guess either stone-flies or may-flies had the attention of the swallows on this day.

this photo was one that I worked for , I took many shots to manage just one decent image of a flying swallow.

though my miss rate for these swallows was very high , the opportunity was wonderful anyways , there where many of them out fly catching and seemingly indifferent to flying by very close to me , more than a couple of times I felt a need to duck :-) , it was also some good practice for trying to lock on to such fast moving birds.

thanks for having a look
regards

I just used the PS patch tool to removed the bright spot behind the bird
