Drinking on the Wing

Well thought I would spend an hour or two trying to photograph the Swallows/Sand Martins at Drift.  Whizzing around all over the place it was quite difficult keeping track of the little blighters, still got a couple of shots. There wasn't to many there today and the sun wasn't playing ball but as usual I persevered. I won't label the images today as they all show similar subject matter, I did try and get a few different angles etc. I may try again on Sunday am early with the light in my favour if they haven't all migrated by then!

This is a subject that is so hard to photograph, I have spent hours photographing kingfishers and have always tried these when I have been waiting. Hard to keep in focus.

One I aspect about your images that I will comment on is your watermark. I understand the use of it but I feel that it does not compliment your images very well? I think possibly a slightly more subtle font might be more successful. It is just a suggestion and possible might make your images more successful when viewed online?

Hi Sam,

Thank you for the feedback, I will consider changing the copyright font/intensity of the watermark and see what I come up with.

I also agree with the other comment with regards to the watermark.

A very difficult aspect of bird photography. I have tried several times without a lot of success and if I nail the shot over cropping became an issue.
