High Speed photograph of swallow feeding chicks

A comonm barn swallow returning to its nest to feed its young passed through a laser beam and this activated a camera. The camera set off a flash that gave a burst of light lasting only about 1/10,000 seond thus ensuring that even the wingtips of the approaching bird were recorded sharply.
