Default A Pause to Pose--Swallow

I was out this morning shooting some shorebirds at the local fish hatchery when I noticed this little fellow darting in and out of a large PVC water supply pipe. He was busy nestbuilding, but was interested enough in what I was doing to hop up on the pipe to see the guy with the camera 20 feet away.





Northern Rough-Winged Swallow, shot with Pentax K20D and Sigma 50-500.

Nice work Paul! Little guy looks like he's been in the rain.

Bob, we've had a nearly solid two weeks of rain, including early this morning. Today's the first time in forever that I've been able to get out and shoot birds.

Nice series, Paul! At this time of year it seems like all the birds are in nest building mode. Cheers, Dan
