They are such graceful birds. And I love that redish glowing color as they swoop overhead in the setting suns. Neat pics....

Mama has her hands full with an overflowing nest of hungry mouths to feed.
Nice series of shots, Tex-wis girl :)

I was raking hay yesterday and had a whole following of barn swallows. They love flying behind the rake and catching the insects it kicks up.
