This should be the end of this series for now.Lol, I know I've bored you with quite a few of these swallow shots, so I think I'll give you a breather...(How magnanimous of me!!!)
So I've decided to go another route tomorrow!
Well, earth to me!
Thanks for looking!

Hi Goldy,

Very good shot of Striated Swallow. Nice pose and composition, very good BG, DOF and POV, sharp details and natural bright colours.



Goldy, your last of the series is a fine capture of this bird in the bright sunshine.
Here we have the advantage of seeing all the significant parts of the bird in a balanced manner, especially its plumage and chest feathers.
The OOF green BG is segregated clearly from the main subject.
Well done and looking forward to your next new image.

Hi Goldy,
no not boring at all my friend, you have shown us these great looking birds in all there glory. This one is no exception. Your DOF is very good and has created an excellent OOF background whilst the shadow has helped to make the Swallow stand out even more...well done!

Hi Goldy,
Very nice photo with excellent details and good composition. TFS. Regards,

I see you have made some interesting changes in the your perspective. This one is quite near spot on...Very nice...Capturing a swallow is always a good sign...not sure why...perhaps it reminds me of days gone by in other places where the birds reign in Kingly style and are much less afraid.

Hi Goldy, looks like you are turning into a bird man!! ...good composition and good colours. tfs regards h

hi Goldy,
nice portrait of a nice little bird, the image is clear and the clours are very nice too, great work
kind regards

Hello Goldy,
This is a fine composition with this little fellow!
I'm always impressed when I see swallows in-flight as they are very skillful fliers and seems like acrobats against the sky...
Fine details and good colours!

Hi Goldy,
Another wonderful shot of this Straited Swallow and another great POV to portray it. Lovely colours and details on its plumage and the bright sunlight gives a glow to it. The BG looks superb and illustrates the habitat well. Excellent composition. Kudos.
