Nice capture Jesse,
It's really hard to get a shot like this in mid air and have any kind of clarity with these little guys. I tried many times without much success, they just dont hold still long enough to focus in.
I see you are using the same camera and lens that I use. I checked your gallery and you are getting some really nice images. TFS

Hi Jesse,
It is very difficult to get a shot like this of this very fast flying bird. Nice image of the bird only a litte bit soft, but with a nice blurred bg and good colours.
