One of the first images I got with Nikon D1h (2.7 MB 18 years old camera).
Shot taken in the morning overcast.  I couldn't resist the Tree Swallow position against the dark trees in the background. I love the colors and texture that D1h produces...like shooting film.

D1h, 500mm f/4 P ED IF
1/160, ISO-800, f/5.6, handheld.

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.

Like the crop. The white circle below the bird tends to take my eye off the bird.

Lovely when viewed large Ludo. That model clearly still has a place.
