On Guard


Tree Swallows are such gorgeous birds. I can't help but fire off a few shots when opportunity knocks. The irridescent blues are irresistible.

Yes they are gorgeous birds! What color and detail in this shot! Beautiful! I once had them nest in my bluebird box. Their nests are just as lovely as they are. White feathers made into a canopy - wow!

I'm lucky to have them nesting in my yard again this year. They took a break last year and this year's pair as feisty as hell. I took some pics of them on Friday and they were mobbing me like crazy. I think I need to borrow one of your faster lenses to take better flight pics ;-) Great shot of a magnificent swallow.
