Swallows are fairly common at the small pond at the Yakima Arboretum. Occasionally

they will perch on a post or box as this one did. Background: bushes and blooms.

Nicely composed image with a wonderful background. Good head angle and eye contact. Well done.

Excellent Tree Swallow image, Jim. I like the pose and you caught the blues beautifully. That background is absolutely wonderful.

Hello, Jim, I’m afraid I can only echo Dennis :wink: . These are beautiful colors swallows, and the background fits very nicely ! Well done, Cheers, Hans

I agree with the others, Jim. A really nice look at this little guy. Those blues are really nice.

Thank you all for your nice comments. They are very much appreciated.

Very pleasing color, detail and BG. I might darken the perch a bit but not a big deal.

Darkened the perch a bit.
