I took this picture beside the farms near my home. In June, you can often see lots of immature swallows screaming to demand foods from their mother or father, feeling good. I took four consecutive shots and got only this approximately successful one. Thanks for your appreciation.

This is superb, splendid, fantastic !
Such an action-shot, how did you do it ! ! !
Great line of the young swallows and the action of the mother ( I think it's not the neighbour.... )
As said, it's superb !

Like a scientific magazine. It can be seen how the mother/fother is feeding its offspring, with the other two waiting to be fed. If you could crop all around to render a bigger photo it would be perfect.

This is a beautiful picture you captured here of a tender moment between the mother and her little ones. I made a workshop to give more emphasis on the action.

So you are lucky guy!
borax (1888) 2004-10-19 20:38
very good DOF, clear, sharp, and the subject is extra !!!
Just maybe you should crop the lower left corner and a part of the upper right

Seattle, excellent action shot that could be on Treknature. I can almost "listen" to the little birds.

Absolutely wonderful !!!

This is great work Seattle. Just about everything in this image, is exemplary. You have attractive, soft colors but 'juicy" framing which draws attention to the swiftlets, lining to be fed. One of them is being fed by its hovering mother. Very good work Seattle.

Very well done,

Photo prise au bon moment, excellent! La lumičre et les couleurs sont magnifiques, c'est rempli de vie et d'expression. Les autres plans sont flou, c'est ce qui fait resortir les oiseaux est leurs donne de la valeur. Bravo, Silvino.

I'm next mom, move over guys!
There is nothing "aproximately successful" about your action shot SeattleLin. You did an excellent job capturing this great moment between parent and offspring. Kudos to you for this picture and sharing with us.

gorgious shot Lin!! Really nice. Shot could also have been put in category "decisive moment" ;-). Congratulations!!
Eridan (425) 2007-02-27 13:43
Very good shot. Deserves more than 2 points. I like the shallow depth of field.
ruisc_pt (10121) 2007-02-27 13:49
Well done Seattle.
Great telephoto here..and what "decisive moment" you catched.
