Hirundo daurica – Ptyonoprogne rupestris



Livaria 22/8.


West cliffs of Telethrion mountain at NW Evia, 27/8.

Its a great challenge to capture aerial and very fast in flight birds like  Crag Martin or Red-rumped Swallow. Swifts as the most aerial of all – they can feed and even sleep on the wing –  are harder than the above to photograph in flight and could easily cause neck damage !! The advantage with them is that usually stay in an area especially if breeding there, so with a lot of patience after a hard effort, some photos could be satisfactory focused.
