Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

A female Tree Swallow has something to say as her mate flies towards her. I have a feeling it was something to do with not bringing her something to eat. She will be laying eggs soon and I am sure she would like to conserve a little energy.
Tree Swallows (Tachycineta bicolor), are a migratory passerine bird that breed in North America and winter in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. They are a very rare vagrant to western Europe.

Tree Swallows average 13.5 cm (5 inches) long and weigh about 20 g. They sport a tiny bill and adult Tree Swallow have iridescent blue-green upperparts, white underparts, and a very slightly forked tail. The female is more often duller in color than the male, often more greenish than the more bluish male. The juvenile plumage is dull grey-brown above and may have hint of a gray breast band.
