Life in the Cemetry Cont 1a:

Hi Everyone i hope you all enjoyed the weekend and managed to get some nice shots. I visited the cemetry a couple of times since Friday, Once in the evening with a friend and once with my wife during the afternoon. I managed to get some nice shots in the evening which i will share later in the week. I will post the pics i took while i was with my wife, she laugthed once when i feel backwards trying to capture the swallows in flight catching flys (they move so fast, its frustrating but fun)

thanks robashfield, i have been trying to capture some shots of the swallows for a few months now. I must admit i have had to crop these pics quite alot. as the ones i took while trying to track them in close resulted in blured or croped wings(thats how i feel over. LOL I like 3 & 5 as they have flys in their beak

Jeez, I can`t photograph anything in flight - well, I got a seagull (see my Roof Top Drinks .... blog) but these........

How on Earth did you get them they are so quick - did you anticipate where they were going to fly to?

Truly Stunning.

Fantastic shots,difficult to pick a favourite. You can't get much better than two in one frame though :)

Thanks everyone,

Saucy i tracked them towards me from the front, Left & Right. It is frustrating and fun as stated before but be warned when tracking birds coming right at you, as they fly overhead you can loose your balance and fall backwards, hopefully not hurting yourself. LOL These little underated birds have to be close but the closer they get the harder they are to track. You will have loads of duff shots but hopefully some keepers as well.
