bird photography : tree swallow

One of the few occasions Beth and John had time to visit their favorite area park, Huntley Meadows, over the spring of 2009, they spotted several Tree Swallows soaring and dipping and racing above the wetlands--as well as this one who obligingly posed atop, of all things, a tree.

Equipment:Canon EOS 30D
Canon EF 300mm f4L IS with 1.4x Teleconverter
Settings:f8; 1/500 sec.; focal length at 420 mm; ISO 200
Date:April 12, 2009 9:05 am
Location:Huntley Meadows Park / Fairfax County, VA
Photography Notes:
With the 1.4x teleconverter attached, the autofocus on my 300mm f4L lens isn't quite good enough to keep up with soaring swallows; fortunately, this one made the photography rather easy by perhing for a few brief moments. Right place, right time, eh?
