I've been watching this pair of Tree Swallows for the past month or so, having a blast photographing them on my lunch hour. Never before have I seen two birds so animated and fun to watch.
They continually repeat the same patterns over and over, so it's easy to move around and set up the same shot from a variety of vantage points and lighting conditions. So far, I think this particular shot with both birds in full focus is my favorite.
