Came across 3 or 4 of these juvenile Pacific Swallows sitting on a wire in the early morning sun, every now and then the parent bird would approach with a grub or insect in mouth to feed them, and they would erupt in a display of frantic wing flapping and noisy chirping in the hope that they would be the first to be fed.

Morning wing stretching exercise?

Thanks for the comments dude! :D

Yes these were taken with flash, can't remember the setting though. Think its abt -2/3 FEC with flash extender.

Garion, nice to see you posting lately :)

These are pretty good attempts in capturing the juv pacific swallows. I noticed that the ambient lighting is not behind you, perhaps you wanna try to use natural light to your advantage the next round, I am sure it will make quite a difference here. Just my 2 cents pal, keep shooting! ;)

Thanks for the invaluable pointer, my friend. Will take note of that next time round. Hope we can all go shooting together again sometime soon. Cheers. :)

well done..keep shooting man...those early wake up calls definately do bring a different perspective to nature shoot. The taxi ride is definately worth it.

Very familiar power line though.... :devil:
