Barn Swallow at Rest Stop

A barn swallow rests on barbed wire.

Barn Swallow Takes a Rest, Point Reyes National Seashore.

I see barn swallows flitting all over at Point Reyes.  When I saw this male on barbed wire I was happy to photograph him.  There was a male on a post next to him.  I don’t normally like to photograph birds on wire, but I liked the way the rust on the wire complemented his colors.

    A stunning bird, with such great colors! I’ve never been fortunate enough to see one sitting still for more than a moment.
