These Tree Swallows are fun to watch, sometimes they sit quietly next to each other, then one starts chirping, gets agitated, goes quiet, then both start, go quiet, and continue sitting there as if nothing happened, go figure. :)

I can't recall seeing an image with two perched swallows, like this one, Axel, so a very special photograph captured here.

They're planning for the season ahead, Axel.  Lots to discuss!  :)   Whatever they're talking about, the image is a real pleasure to see.  A beauty!

Great discussion captured. The variation of tones in the blues is super.

Looks like an old married couple Axel.  Great details in this fun image.
