My Perch by mydigitalmind My Perch by mydigitalmind
The tree swallows favorite perch at Colonial Park - the nesting house. These birds are so fast in flight, that this is the only way I can get a clear photo of them. I watched the swallows fly over the lake for a couple of hours before sunset. They remind me of kids on a playground - having fun and never being predictable while in flight.

A very good shot, and your right, it is next to impossible to get a shot of them flying. I've taken well over fifty shots and not ONE has been any good. But they are fun to watch. ^_^
