A Welcome Sky

Continuing with the idea from Wednesday!

These birds are much easier to photograph on the plant, rather than on the wing.

Their speed and agility make them masters of the sky.




You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.  SM

Most birds are hard to get in motion, some are just so agile. You got it just! Well done. Looks good.

wings and tail outstretched - good pick up. As you say Stewart, these birds move swiftly; I've tried too to pick up photos of them without any success. You nailed this one and lovely sky backdrop too
