Barn Swallow-Hirundo rustica

This is from ringing station of Cernek Lake, Kizilirmak Delta.

I hold this beauty in my hand for a short time to take some photos and when I finished my job, I released it. This was its first flapping, and I was ready for a last time to take a shot:)

This is the result.

Hi Emin, excellent capture, excellent composition and sharpness, Juan

Hello Emin

Well done for capturing this, TN seems to have become overwhelmed with birds of late and has almost become the prerequisite for an image on here. But having said that this is a fantastic image that has stopped time and is refreashing to see a different angle.

Merhaba Emin,
No doubt, one of the most original photos on TN. A great instant of action, sharply rendered. How is it that you got to hold it in your hand?
