Built for speed

I spent a long, hot afternoon trying to get a decent photograph of a swallow in flight - with no success. Finally this one landed to preen its feathers, looking beautifully streamlined. They look fast even when they are at rest, don't they?

  1. Lovely swallow portrait. Their flight low over the meadows is breathtaking.
