I was trying to shoot these guys in the air when I noticed they were very interested in a water puddle. So I changed my view. Not sure if they were just drinking or fetching clay. But the nesting should be over I think.

  2. Hello!:) The House Martin is a sweet bird, but difficult to photograph in flight, like the Swallows and Swifts. Nice captures.:)

  6. In flight images....fantastic. And the iridescence you managed to capture is also quite fantastic.

    Again, thanks for sharing.
