A pair of Pacific Swallows
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Pacific Swallows eat insects, catching them during flight. However, they don't hunt on the wing. They perch and wait, then actually chase after individual prey and perform aerial acrobatics to catch them.|
These swallows are found everywhere in Singapore, but usually near water and open country. I photographed this pair at a reservoit.

Loved your notes; we have these here too, but, only in the early Spring and all Summer long.
I had no idea they "waited" for their food to arrive; always assumed they fed themselves "on the wing" sort of.
Thanks for sharing both, your most lovely image & your knowledge of this species.
