A very obliging tree swallow, who posed on his perch for an entire minute at the East Harbor Park near Port Clinton, OH.
Beautiful! I love those moments when these precious creatures pause long enough for you to capture their beauty.

Really nice photo
You are great at capturing them in motion. I've tried so hard to shoot birds but I fail miserably, always spooking them because I'm clumsy lol!
Thanks! I feel for you, because I spook a lot of birds myself. But FYI, I rigged up an anti-spooking system this time: I have my camera mounted on a tripod inside my house, and I shoot through a glass door at a bird feeder just ten feet away. If I sit quietly inside, the birds don't even notice me. Best of luck--I hope you get some too!
Very beautiful little bird. An instant fave for me.
