Default my best swallow BIF shot so far

went down to check on a nearby osprey nest here this afternoon - no sign of young 'uns in the nest yet, just the two adults taking turns sitting on the eggs. but i did get the best shot i've managed so far of a swallow in flight... 7DII, 300mm, 1/1600 @ f/8

A difficult to photograph subject with unpredictable flying patterns! Nice capture!

thanks, guys! i probably shouldn't say this is my best swallow BIF ever - i did get a killer shot of a couple of 'em in some aerial acrobatics a few years ago - but this is the best i've gotten in the last 5 years or so.
