Photographed on a day with high clouds. It's always fun to watch their maneuvering.

This may be my new favorite of your series of BIF Swallow images. Love the angled tail which shows off the white markings in this top side view.

Great flight pose with a nice head turn. Every time I see them fly around the Bridge (Cliff Swallows) I'm thinking of your amazing skills of capturing them.

Whenever I see swallows, I know that Spring has truly arrived. Wonderful capture.

Swallow in flight used to be difficult to shoot. These days? Not anymore.
