The other day the Bank Swallows were flying low over the pond, catching insects. I thought it would be a good opportunity to experiment with photographing birds in flight.
Rather than use auto-focus, I switched to manual and tried to catch swallows as they zoomed near me, focusing as best as I could (they dip and move very quickly). I took a lot of pictures that I trashed as soon as I saw them, but there was one that jumped out at me.
Perhaps not a traditional in-flight picture, and just dumb luck to get its “face” so well in focus, but I’m happy. Maybe I’ll try again, another sunny day.
