Geezuz has anyone tried to photograph Swifts?
Talk about frign swift!
I have long admired these birds and today they were taking insects on the wing after the rain over one of the hills at home,cutting over and past me like bullets.
Dull grey skies with bugger all light and the speed of the birds made it a really tough task to even get them in the frame,out of 27 pics maybe 1/2 doz are just "so so"
What a missile,streamlined and with that extraordinary wing length makes them super quick.
These are White -throated Needletails our biggest swifts.
