My first attempt at Tree Martins and Welcome Swallow BIF with the 80D

Hi ,

I am trying to photograph Tree Martins and I noticed  some Welcome Swallows flying with the Martins.They are so fast.I managed to get some shots with the birds in the frame.The 80D AI servo was up to the task when I got the bird in the 9 point zone and allowed a second for focus lock.Any misses were on my part.

My max shutter speed was about 1/1250th sec which seems to be too slow for these birds. I will try again in better light to get higher shutter speeds. Here are a few where they are in focus and in the frame.

Cheers

Murray
