As I drive around looking for specific nature, wildlife, or landscape images, I try to keep my mind open to anything that catches my eyes. I believe there are beautiful images to be taken around each corner and on each trip even if I've been there before. This particular scene caught my eye on my latest drive. I always watch these bird houses this time of year and this particular bird house had a perfect farm scene as a backdrop complete with a red barn. I loved the tall grass, the old stump, and farm backdrop. If only I could have the bird to complete it.....on cue came a couple of barn swallows bringing their fresh bug catches to the house. I took several images of the scene. Here is one of those images capturing the barn swallow with his wings spread wide. These are one of my favorite birds as they eat bugs and are extremely fast, agile flyers.
