Violet-Green Swallow

Eastern Oregon
7D2, Sigma 150-600mmC@600mm, F6.3, 1/2000, ISO 800, -0.33 EC tripod. Thanks for any comments or suggestions, Dave

Oh wow, he is gorgeous, David. I love how the blue sky frames up around behind his head and shoulder, allowing the green on him to contrast nicely against the blue. Wonderful detail and color, and that perch is really nice.

Great look at the swallow. Nice head turn and good detail and a pleasing background.

Hi David,
A beautiful subject so well captured with the downward look toward us and those amazing colors. Very nice background too. Exposure on whites look good - you handled the strong light well. Nicely done!

Excellent, Dave. It’s tough to get just the right light to show off this species without it being too harsh. You caught it just right. I also like the two toned background.
