+1, it's not easy to get those fast little blighters, and it was done very nicely.

Thank you Click.

Alan, it was the only one that the focus was solid out of about 50.  Some would be fine at a larger size but could not be cropped to this size.  Thank you Alan.

Yes, swallows are amongst the hardest birds of all to catch in flight. Well done!

Barn Swallow


Thank you.  Having not used a Wimberly I can not figure out how to follow a swallow with it even though I understand its operation.  I would be beating the heck out of my self with the tripod.  ;D

1 out of 50 sounds good to me - I had 3 out of 600 that were acceptable. Not as good as yours

Is this an autofocus problem?  If so, what body?  I definitely don't want to buy it...

It isn't a camera body issue it is a bird issue.  Swallows are very small, very fast and turn on a dime giving you 9 cents change.  They are exceedingly difficult to get sharp shots of when in flight.
