This swallow was just asking to be photographed, perched on a cable at Thonon-les-Bains, France. The photo was taken about a month ago. By now this bird is probably well on its way down to South Africa for the winter, part of the great seasonal bird migrations.
We’ll miss that ceaseless flying to and fro over open ground or water catching insects, and look forward to next year’s return.
