Violet Green swallows were feeding on a bug hatch.
Total overcast from a approaching snow storm created
the white background. The last 3 were from a 1 second
burst. There is a bug in the last shot.

Good shooting !
I can hardly keep swallows in sight when they’re close enough to photograph.
The bug is a bonus 😄

Thank you Marianne. I've been attempting to shoot feeding
swallows for a few years now, every shot I learn a little something
new. This time it was the overcast sky that created a new challenge.

Thank you Bonnie for taking a look. I have a few others with
the swallows closing on a bug, that is what keeps me coming
back. It's early in the season for bug hatches, just nice to be
outside. Be safe.

Thank you Corky. I usually sit at the rivers bank with the sun at my back.
I watch for some flight pattern, they do slow down when they
approach the feeding area. I take short bursts when attempting
to capture one that I can keep in the viewfinder.
