Swallow Landing

Manhattan, Kansas

Barn swallows (thanks, Terry) built their home, and are caring for youngsters, along side an observation pavilion for the konza Prairie Preserve, just outside Manhattan, Kansas. If you are in the area of Jansas State University, this is a must!

Great catch, these birds are really fast flyers. Andrea

Swallows are so very quick . I like the color combination. The brick-red background shows off the Swallows colors to advantage.

Those colors are a dead give away, Michael. Very tricky shot to capture!

Not the easiest bird in the world to photograph in flight! Nice shot.

Nice timing to get this.

I'll take your word, Terry...
I can't tell the difference at that speed.

Nice landing shot! This looks more like a barn swallow to me, Michael
