So cute! Birds I have never seen up close nor been able to Photograph. I love the blue colors on them.
Your focus is sharp and your DOF is Sa-wa-eeeeet.
Fine bird is Barbara!
I saw this needed a ribbon so 15th Review should place one here ;)

    Thank you so much for the great review and bringing this up to recognized status. The arboretum has nesting boxes where these little birds live. Sometimes I can get close enough to get a good shot with a 3oomm lens.

A cute & candid capture!!
Lovely pair in a romantic pose.
Sharply focused.
Subtle illumination.
Impressive framing with the wooden plank adding a solid texture.

Nice perspective & narrow DOF.

Thanks for sharing...

Oh what a wonderful photo of these two Swallows.

You did an excellent job in capturing the iridescence of the feathers as the sun reflects off them.

Good details and nice sharp focus. Very nicely done Barbara ~ Steve

A nicely composed/cropped image. The birds are shown in fine detail, but I would look at making a bit darker as long as you don't lose the eyes.

Lovely shot of these two swallows looking for food or a home. Nice shot with them both standing in different orientations to you. Sharp focus so details are readily viewable. Good color. Well seen and captured.
