I was strolling this morning and came to this garden, and there were numeros flying Swallows along with some other birds - and I sat on the grass and took about 40 or so pictures: see also the 2 WS as one swollow cought inflight. Those are very swift and evasive birds, and they were flying low on grass proximity.
One more post also on TN .

A pleasant scene with the old trees and the red berries!
The low point of view works well, bringing us face to face with the birds...
I guess swallows are hard to photograph, as they are so fast in flight!

un'ottima cattura in cui oltre alla bellezza di questi alberi dalle chiome fiorite hai ripreso anche il volo basso degli uccelli.
Buona la qualità e la resa della luce,

Superb place, well coloured and full of serenity. The colors of the flowers in the tree arise very well in the green color. Greta depht too with the large FG.
Have a nice WE,

a beautiful shot of wonderful garden,
trees with red nuts look settled and rich,
and rapidly flying swallows look illusionary on the green yard,
maybe lots of insects are fed by the flights,
very cheerful ambience is nice,
thank you for your interesting shot,

Old trees in the park, and in the foreground perfectly captured swallows in flight. Excellent image quality and excellent composition.

you really had a difficult task when you captured this scene with the swallows! But the result is very pleasant. The light is amazingly illuminating these interesting trees - and the colors are very beautiful. My compliments!

A perfect combination, of sun, trees, grasses and flying birds that summed up to this peaceful place to unwind and take in the beauty and charm. So sit, relax and watch the show! I love layering of colours and contrast on the foreground complementing the tree. Well done shot, Congrats
