Front crawl entry swimming techniques

In front crawl when does the hand enter the water - before the arm being fully extended or should it be fully extended. In other words I see swimmers go in high elbows and enter their hand in the water than reach before the pull? Is this correct?

yes if what you are saying is enter water with hand first thumb first then extend the arm rather than enter the whole arm fully extended..
