Barn swallow at the beach
The bay was calm yesterday afternoon. I viewed the different shades of blues and greens through my Leicas and watched barn swallows hunt for insects. I watched their manoeuvres and thought I would have a go at taking some pictures. Here's one I'd like to share because it is pretty close up and shows a lot of detail. Hope you like it, too.
