Tree Swallow

During spring and summer the most common bird around Lake Galena in Peace Valley Park is the Swallow. I photographed this pair in the south-west end of the lake. The individual in flight was constantly in air, hovering around its partner which gave me several opportunities to capture their dance.

This is among my favorite photographs, one that I’ve already printed. Everything about it works for me – the composition, the sharpness, the exposure.
