Welcome Swallow

Welcome Swallow (Image ID 44258)
CommentI have chosen this image as it is a classic parent feeding fledglings action shot and my best bird in flight behavioural shot of 2020. The focus is on the Fledglings whose eyes are visible and the mouths wide open. The Parent bird is sharp with the wing tips slightly blurred indicating in flight movement. The Branch provides a nice line drawing the three birds together. I also enjoyed the bokeh provide by the water underneath and the willow tree in the foreground providing added but not distracting interest and a slightly Japanese feel. I also enjoy the mirror like repetition of the willow green leaves top right and defocussed providing diagonal balance to the whole frame.
