Default a couple of swallow BIFs

while waiting at the osprey nest this afternoon, i thought i'd try my hand at catching swallows in flight... they've historically eluded me, and i still miss more than i get, but the 7DII does improve my odds! i had the lens backed off to 300-450mm to get the little stinkers in the viewfinder, so these are fairly heavy crops, but i'm not unhappy with the results...
