Departures and Arrivals / by Walter Kitundu

Violet-green Swallows have taken up residence outside my living room window so I thought a bit of digiscoping might be in order. It is great fun to watch them forage for food and make their rounds.

A rare moment of stillness. Keeping watch from the entrance.

Tipping out at an unusually steep angle.

How's that for timing? Lining up the approach to home with a last minute insect to grab.

Swooping past the entrance with grace and style.

Brushing wingtips in an act of precision flying.

Out for more. They make sweeping arcs through the sky outside the window and are such a lovely addition to the yard.
