Default Houston, we're ready for a lift-off !

Caught this little Tree Swallow ready to take-off



Sky is clear, let's do it !



I think he was testing wind velocity on this one...

Betcha Air Force around the world takes ideas from birds... look at the pose...



This one, little couple.. Obviously the male doesn't pay attention (as usual) while she talks, LOL !!



Ok ok, my scenario doesn't make any sense.. but does that remind you something at home ?

Haha !

Eric, I'm very impressed, particularly the first shot.

Regards,

Thanks to both of you. I'm going back to that newly found march / swamp preserve today. I'm seeing incredible ammount of wildlife there, I'm in paradise :P

On a technical note, I found (think I read it somewhere before, not paying attention) that the higher the ISO the less details we see. Today is nice and sunny, I'll try at ISO200 instead and we'll see how it comes out .

Cheers !

The first photo is excellent, but I vote for the last one as being absolutely tremendous. (Yes, it's a tad reminiscent of the occasional household situation.)

Thank you Barbara and all, here's another one I took today



The title is... "She's all talk.. he doesn't pay attention" , LOL

Just teasing

Was taking at a different angle, it was sunny, and used F/11 to get both in DOF

Cheers, I have to go to work now :?
