Tree Swallow on a chain.I find it amazing how the iridescences come out so well.
I would like to go into some of my archives and post photos that never made it to my gallery before. Least until I get some chances to go out and shoot new.
You people are great for always taking time to view my images.
I'll be back after my sleep to make comments.

Nice shot, Doug!

Hello Doug,
Those birds are so photogenic with their beautiful blue metallic color! I have tried to capture some but they are not staying still for a second :) I like this chain which brings an unusual and different element. Details, compo and exposure are beautiful. Thanks,

Good one, Doug - yeah - the iridescence shows great! Good detail and colors! Well done!

Hello Doug

I love the richness of the colours.

Just marking the post for now.


wow, this is a super catch, what a lovely bird, never seen it so close, love the metallic feathers !! Looks super against the blue sky

Hallo Doug

Thanks for welcoming me to Trek Nature. I appreciate your visit and the positive critique you left me. I am sure Iíll enjoy every moment and that my knowledge about nature and everything involved will grow daily.
Although this is not your latest posting, I wanted to critique this specific one. On browsing through your portfolio, my eye caught this Tree Swallow. The day Iíll be able to photograph a swallow like this, Iíll give myself the stamp of approval. These birds have such an overdose of energy and never seem to sit still. The combination of colours of this birdís feathers is well harmonized and detail is good. The metallic blue is superb and I love the small beak and eye. I agree with Claudine that the chain adds something different to the photo. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards
