Glorious Tree Swallows

Many thanks to Mickey Raine for this series of recent beautiful Tree Swallow photos taken at Mill Creek Marsh. Mickey gives a great description of this amazing species:

The most adorable of all the creatures found in the area–the TREE SWALLOWS, those masters of aerial acrobatics as they zip in and out and swish/swoosh by in all directions with lightening speed for short bursts.  The tiny insects flying about have no chance with these cuties … As adorable as they are, when posed in certain lights in such a way, they can seem quite regal with that Egyptian Blue capturing the attention of any onlooker.
