Hello friends in TN,

The Pacific Swallow or Hill Swallow (Hirundo tahitica) is a small passerine bird in the swallow family. It breeds in tropical southern Asia from southern India and Sri Lanka across to south east Asia and the islands of the south Pacific. It is resident apart from some local seasonal movements. This bird is associated with coasts, but is increasingly spreading to forested uplands.


Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
I can see bright BG... And to me it is very difficult to capture picture in such condition.
But you have captured it well with nice focus and sharpness.Eyes and breast colour is clearly visible against such light.Well captured with nice POV.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hello Jusni

The pose of the lovely Pacific Swallow on
the branch, with your POV and the way
both the Swallow and the branch are framed
both diagonally and opposite one to the other
it gives a wonderful dynamism to the image, TFS


Hi Jusni,
interesting low point of view. I like the composition and presentation.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Jusni,

This may not be your best quality photo technically but I like very much the composition with the branch reaching out to the wide open of the sky background and the bird sitting beautifully on it. Good brightness and color, sharpenss and clarity not as good as your other iamge, but still very enjoyable.
