This is a composite image of one Welcome Swallow puting on quite a show on the power line near home. Not my street because we have underground power - just thought I'd give you all the heads up to clarify that :)

Thanks Edward, it's fun to do. Trickiest bit was to get the power line joined up correctly.

Thanks Taboo. It was a rather enjoyable day at our local lake. These guys (around 50+) were buzzing around in a frenzy, catching bugs in flight and feeding a baby that was perched on a star picket in the middle of the lake. It was giving orders to all the food donors. It was a sight I won't forget and glad I had the camera withn me. 100's of burst shots.

Cheers Brian, always fun to do to keep the brain active.
Fabulous. Is the first one Photoshop'ed ?
Thanks for that Tony. Definitely both of them are composites made in Photoshop. They take a bit of time working with a few layers and masks but mostly work out OK. On occasions you can make it look as though the subjects are interacting. I've done some with galahs using that method like they are chatting to one anoher.
