Pacific Swallow

Chinese name: 洋斑燕

Location: Yishun Pond Park, Singapore

Date: 25th October 2020

Before I have the opportunity to take a closer look and observe this species, I have the impression that all the swallow has long tail and when it’s flying it’s look like a scissor and the bird are in black colour.

I am so wrong about this and very shocked to see the pacific swallow has such a beautiful blue metallic shining back and red hair on it’s fore head, orange hair around it’s neck.

It’s so amazing to be able to observe it through the Olympus 100-400mm telephoto lens . I sit down quietly at a good location and watch it fly back to rest at the same location again and again. Gives me ample time and chances to try different way to take the shot.

By using E-M1 MarkIII Pro Capture Low mode and very reliable auto focus system, I am able to capture the amazing moments especially when it expand the beautiful wings / take off / perching.

Hope you like this series of photo 🙂
