Barn Swallows in Rest and In Flight
These ones hardly ever sit still except in the early evening when the family comes to sit on the handrails, and the parents feed the young. I tied aiming for a spot where they were flying and clicked and had success this time, although that meant closing the aperture so that I would have a larger depth of field and not being too fussy about the background. This is a start as I am not finished with this challenge yet.
