Welcome swallows


An Australian form (Hirundo neoxena) not often found perching for a photo.
Soon will migrate to northern parts for the duration of the southern winter,
returning in spring from which they get the 'Welcome' name.
Cropped for effect. Best viewed in 'original' format.

1/400s f/5.6 at 55.0mm iso1000 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Such colourful, pretty Welcome swallows! Lovely shot. We see only the black&white (and partly blue) swallows in Finland. (Delichon urbium and hirundo rustica) V!

What beautiful little birds and so different from our swallows. A wonderful capture of the pair, so nicely isolated against the grassy background! V
