The Adventures of Barney the Barn Swallow by 

I spotted this barn swallow while out on a nature walk with my good friend Julie a couple of weeks ago.

It was a cold and windy day and my poor old artheritic hands were not working too well until Julie saved the day by providing me with a nice warm pair of gloves. This allowed us to stay longer and get great shots of barn swallows and Osprey! Thanks dear Julie!

    Very appealing Robin, great use of textures to pop out the beautiful bird colours.

  • I am definately in a texture phase John! These are my own textures. Thank you so much for the lovely comment! :)

    Oh how sweet he is, great capture Robin. I think I’ll just have to wait until I get a telephoto lens to capture something this fab! LOL!

  • He and his mates were beauties for sure Kathie! I was happy to get a few good shots. They were pretty quick! Thanks so much for your lovely comment! :)
