LITTLE CAKE, KY (Sat 28 May 2016) - I recently sent some photos using slow shutter speed, so figured I would send you some using fast shutter speed.

I took some photos today of birds flying around in the field.


Don't know what there exactly called, but I all ways called them swallows.

I do know there fast little boogers. To freeze them in mid air I was using the fastest shutter speed my camera could do, which was 1-4000 of a second.

I came out with about 15 pretty good photos but just to get the 15 shots that were ok, I had to take over 300 shots. Here is I think the best three.

Graceful, entertaining flyer, cliff swallows are great assets in reducing insect numbers. This one is in a landing pattern in a new mown field in the Little Cake area. Professional photographer Jason Mardis captured this moment using a 1/4000th of a second shutter speed and following the flight. For more on the species, see: Wikipedia entry: Cliff Swallow
