Here's a Northern-rough Winged Swallow with symmetrical reflection.  One of the most difficult birds I've ever photographed from an in flight / motion standpoint.  5D III users set your camera to AI servo with CASE 5 when tracking this erratic flyer (if unfamiliar most swallow/swifts will have same rule of thumb when in flight)

The term "bird portrait" is, at best, an oxymoron...one cannot do a portrait, using an acceptable definition of the term, in the creature's natural milieu.  Nonetheless...

Hummingbird at feeder
Magpies vying for a spot
Generally colorful birds are not very difficult to make them look good in an image ... however, the "not so photogenic" birds (like Magpies, crows, ravens etc), are a lot more difficult ... but you made those Magpies look AWESOME by your talent, keen eye and timing ... great job ... hats off sir.

Great shot revup67. I've taken pic's of the Welcome Swallow, here in Australia and any of these swallows can be challenge for both the photographer and the hardware :)

Hummingbird in my yard. Forgot to set the white balance after shooting in an ice rink. I decided I liked the cooler tones, and it matched the color of my walls.
