Swallows learning to fly


Flying lesson

This was taken in a courtyard in Katowice just off the old area at ul Kopernika, where the swallows were being given their flying lesson by the parents. They go around and around screaming at each other, and when they’ve got the hang of it, then it’s off to Africa they go, and that’s all the induction they get before needing to make one of creation’s epic journeys. This is still one of my early attempts. these days I’d have enhanced the sound, and got them going round a few more times and in slow motion, but back when this was made I hadn’t even used Windows Movie Maker. No Titles, no cutting, no nothing, just the way it came off the camera, like all the ones in the “early attempts” session on Huliganov TV.
