I don't know what these little guys are but they sure have a hard time on the power lines in the wind:-)

Some really nice action catches Alady! The second photo, the one bird looks almost
as if it it directing the other for a landing.

Excellent action freezes on these alady, you must have had a nice high shutter to completely stop those little wings because these swallows can be fast birds. Not sure what kind of swallow they are but I'll eat my hat if they aren't swallows of some kind.

You did good action work on these ones, very good indeed!

I was thinking Swallows too. This shot would be great intercut with shots of jets trying to land on an aircraft carrier.

Nice job,

Thanks Norm, Exposure 1/3200, F10, ISO 800 were the settings, I was experiments with what would be the best settings to catch them without blur.
