Wonderful photos of a really pretty bird. Great color. That pose on the
second shot is pretty cool.

Very nice wing and feather definition on these Martins. I recall when my dad first put in a pool long ago the bugs were a real problem so he set up Martin houses and problem was solved quickly. The dog got dive bombed regularly, though.

PS - congratulations on your Martins getting back safely and in one piece. And they don't even look tired; are you going to help them unpack? :-)

RDV,

Great shots with the Oly B-300. I do wonder if the TCON 17 can do as well.

The pictures are sharp and colors vibrant.

The second one is my favorite of the three.
