Catch Me If You Can, He Said, and I Did by 

Capturing one of these little dipty doodle Barn Swallows in flight is like trying to catch and hold on to a greased pig.

After much twisting around and getting dizzy trying to catprue one of these guys it finally happened. Trying to catch one of these boys in flight makes you look a little screwy out there twisting around like a nut on a stick.

While with my son Scott a few weeks ago we managed to get one sitting still finally, but to catch one in flight is something else, well, got him now and I have no intention of trying again another time.

Started photography in my mid teen years. Beginning with a Brownie Starmite camera taking slides. I continued advancing always improving on my abilities until finally investing in a SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera.
I kept advancing through the 35mm film erra and into the Digital world of Photography. I have always Shot with Canon Cameras and today I shoot with the Canon Eos 7-D.
