Amazing aerobatics

When it comes to flying few things can beat the swallow. The Daily Mail Online had a series of amazng pictures taken by a bird watcher and photographer - presumably with a high-speed camera. They are absolutely stunning.

The birds that form the subject of his photos are caught on camera negotiating a two inch wide opening in flight - the flight speed is around 35 mph - and this is all the more amazing as the birds have a fourteen inch wingspan. The pictures have to be seen to be believed.
