Barn Swallow at Schoolhouse Pond

I haven’t been to Schoolhouse Pond in a while, so I took a chance this morning. I missed a Black Crowned Night Heron, who took off as I arrived, and some of the large birds were so close I had to reduce the zoom and shoot in DX mode to keep them in the frame.

I didn’t get anything great, but I may try again tomorrow.
