[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Couple of tree swallows.It was a bit difficult with this lens and no tripod, and I did not even know I had this shot, until viewing on the PC.
Thought it a bit funny.
The Tree Swallow, Tachycineta bicolor, is a migratory passerine bird that breeds in North America and winters in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. It is a very rare vagrant to western Europe.

This swallow averages 13.5 cm (5 inches) long and weighs about 20g. The bill is tiny. The adult Tree Swallow has iridescent blue-green upperparts, white underparts, and a very slightly forked tail. The female usually has duller colours than the male, often more greenish than the more bluish male. The juvenile plumage is dull grey-brown above and may have hint of a gray breast band.

Hi Doug, Wonderful capture this! Looks like a picture in motion. Good work.

Hi Doug, Well timed capture with very strong composition and colour. I think you've done well considering this was handheld.

It is funny, Doug! I suspect you were shooting in burst mode... the best way to get a good scene like this. Great title too. The blue adds so much to the shot.

This is a delightful shot! Brilliant colors - the iridescent blue-green you mention is gorgeous! The action, though, is what makes this of course. It's just great!!!!
