Pho Hin Rong Kla


 It had been many many years since I visited Pho Hin Rong Kla in the province of Petchabun.
My good friend Bengt Legnell came with me on this trip as we both wanted to see the alleged Nepal House Martin on the mountain.
We were not to be disappointed as we came across several hundred of birds if not thousands.
One can only speculate as to the status of these birds. Is there a smaller resident population that increases dramatically in winter?
Either way, the birds were a lot of fun to photograph. Fast fliers, twisting and turning made for challenging photography.



 I used my Canon 7D with the 400F5.6. Had it on servo with 9 focal points and as high shutter speed as possible.


The last two images are my favorite. Imagine trying to do the same with an old film camera?
