Low Flyer

By Alan_Baseley    
Low flying Swallow caught on the cliff top at Bridlington yesterday. There were a few skimming about only inches above the grass so I decided to try and catch one in flight. I took 40 plus frames, about 20% didn't have a bird in and in most of the rest the birds were not in focus.

Thanks to Fred, Carol & Myra for their UAs on my last upload.

have to say 'well done' for capturing one at all, i have tried and failed - i do think unf. that this is a tad digitised however, perhaps it has been cropped somewhat?
