You CRAZY Bird Photographer !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your latest posts are INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What species are they? I'm unfamiliar with most South African bird species.

Your skills in capturing Bird-in-Flight (BIF) images are climbing sky-high.

Truly inspiring bird photography — Thank you.

Tom, I apologise, I should have put that info in the post and can't edit it now.

 

1) Barn swallow (immature)

2) Little Swift (not too sure about this, the tail seems too wide, but I don't know what else it can be)

3) Ant-eating Chat

4) Malachite Sunbird

 

As for the improvement in my BIF photography, I am afraid it has nothing to do with skill and everything to do with my recent camera upgrade.

Whatever it takes...

The results are stunning, the rate of improvement impressive.

You're setting a high standard!

Thank you so much for those helpful identifications.

Well, @@Peter Connan, I am assured that your other photography hobby has a lot to do with your exceptional skill of capturing small & fast flying objects ;) !

Malachite sunbird, Camdeboo National Park (I am particularly proud of this one):

 

 

@@Peter Connan I think this one is much better.

Thanks @@Geoff

 

Wen I posted the first one, I had not really looked at the later one yet.

 

Whichever one is best, the sunbirds in Camdeboo National Park's campsite where very kind to me.
