SIF's (swallows in flight)

OK, this is my first serious attempt at swallows in flight.

Using my Sigma 135-400 APO DG set at 250mm and using manual focus, this is the best I could get. Man they are fast!!

High ISO is more of a problem on trhe *istD than the K5 as you can tell from these shots which were taken at ISO1600
The best of the bunch

100% crop

And another one I managed to get reasonably sharp, 100% crop

These were the best from about 20 shots I took.


All I want is a digital back for my trusty K1000 . . .
