Some of the juveniles looking nice and pristine in the warm evening sun.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Our little blue birds, the Swallow, will soon be making their way back to South Africa, in fact most are probably on their way already. I keep looking up when I'm out thinking it won't be long now. The Swifts have already gone, so I thought I'd pay these guys some attention before they depart my neighbourhood for another year.

I love to watch them divebombing for insects at dusk each evening... especially since I've been attacked by marauding mosquitoes!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your photos at the new home for Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2014/09/shell-game-linky.html
They are beautiful and I cant get enough of them birds! My visitors are limited to pigeons and seagulls. Would love to see these small pretties =) #wwReplyDelete

Cute little birds. Their visit is so short.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos, some are still here and prepare for destination.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Swallows are one of my favorite birds!ReplyDelete
Nice shots Adam!:) I saw a lot of them lined up on the telegraph wires yesterday, getting ready to leave. Haven't managed a good shot of them all the time they've been here!:(ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds..and shots!ReplyDelete
Migration really is a remarkable thing - how can something so small and so young pull it off!ReplyDelete
The iron beach is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Desecration? Yes. History? Yes as well.

Our Welcome swallow (Hirundo neoxena) looks very similar but doesn't announce the seasons so dramatically as yours'! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

Swallows are like icing on the cake. I think we take them for granted so many times but they are wonderful birds! I don't know if I told you this but I love your header!ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful ! Really wonderful shots !ReplyDelete
To have them so close by where you live is fantastic. I would be watching them daily. And waiting patiently for their return.ReplyDelete

I see them often, but rarely manage to photograph them. Yours are beautiful.ReplyDelete
