I practiced getting these speedsters in flight, and this one cooperated nicely.

Practice makes perfect. Outstanding flight shot of this speedster. The symmetrical look I think adds to the feeling of speed in this flight shot.

Another excellent in-flight image, Axel. ( Tried in-flight swallow photography recently- no success- you seem to have it figured out very well ! )

I'll say it did! Lovely topside view. I call swallows "practice birds"- really hones your skills to try to capture them. Most of ours have been flying too high to get the topside view though.
