Swallow


Photo Information
Taken while walking around Blakney. At one point I counted 26 sitting on this fence at one time. Fantastic at home they are constantly on the wing screeching while feeding

This is the bird whose arrival each year I look forward to and which delights me the most and whose departure saddens and depresses me enormously...

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!
