Re: This week's BIF

Terrific shots of some great birds. The first and second for me. Successful BIF shots are still a mystery to me but you have obviously worked out how to do it.

Re: This week's BIF

A lovely swallow shot, really lovely colour and of course everything else is spot on.

For me, sand martins are an annual favourite which I will go to the nest site to shoot locally soon. But after these I will need to find a few swallow nests to try those. I'm sure it will be a huge challenge.

Great work

Re: This week's BIF

Andy, I notice these were taken with the Panasonic 100-400mm. Was there any particular why you chose to use this rather than your Oly 300mm, or is it just for the versatility of the zoom?

No, no, no - don't you realise that Olympus cameras are hopeless for birds in flight?
