Barn Swallows...Tough to Photograph

Fast and erratic...I challenged myself today. I told one of my photography students how hard it was to photograph Swallows in flight. So...I looked for where they were gathering mud and twigs for their nests...and waited for one to land and grab a twig...I shot at 1/1600th of a second and continued shooting until the Swallow took off...not realizing I was getting a bonus of a second Swallow flying into the frame.
