Tree swallow
I'm not sure what this guy are fighting about. There is no food around and it doesnt seem fighting over a territorial either.
This bird is common in the bay area during summer season.

Hi Ricardo, Excellent capture and composition.well done

Wonderful action shot, Ricardo! These require lot's of patience. The interactive combination of the two swallows adds interest to it. Congratulations.

Superbe photo Ricardo, belle scène en plein vol.
Bravo !

Woooow! Amazing capture!
Very sharp image, excellent wings movement.SUPERB!

What a catch Ricardo! I know how difficult it is to get such shots from experience! TFS!

Helo Ricardo

What a fantastic capture. Your timing was perfect. Not easy to capture Swallows as they move at top speed. Congrats.... this is an awesome shot. Thanks.

Hi Richardo. What a brilliant moment you caught here. Great exposure, details and composition. I love the spread of their wings almost mirroring each other. It's a fantastic shot :)

Excellent shot. The position and the blur of the wings exaggerates the feeling of movement, making a very dynamic scene.
