Dare I say it, more Swallows after Firmware 3

Went to the lake near home this morning. Very cloudy and grey to start but the Welcome Swallows got active eventually.

1. Uncropped

Auto ISO (max 800), WB Auto, C-AF, Sensitivity +2, C-AF Centre Start (All), Metering ESP, Sequential L 10fps, S-IS2, other data as shown.  Started with 5x5 focus points and Focus limiter set to 35m but found that C-AF Release Priority was On which resulted in too many OOF images.  Switched off Focus limiter and Release Priority.  Camera was focusing on ripples on the water's surface so progressively changed to 3x3 grid and finally 3x3 cross.

Images with a sky background are more successful than water background.

2. Uncropped

3. Uncropped

4. Uncropped.  Camera focussing on swallow rather than ripples.

What haven't I told you?
