Barn Swallow Checking Wing Flaps

Grays Harbor NWR, Washington


Camera Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

Exposure 0.001 sec (1/1600)

Aperture f/5.6

Focal Length 400 mm


Saw so many of these gorgeous little birds. They fly so fast that it's a chore to get a lock on one especially with a 400mm lens. But they sure love the airport and while grabbing a soda at the airport cafe, this little guy was doing its pre-flight check.
