I like Swallows, I think they are such elegant flyers. If only they weren’t so difficult to photograph, especially in flight. This shot is the only decent one from a large number of attempts one afternoon at Kilchoman. At least I’ve got both states in one picture, in flight and at rest.
OK, I admit, the headline is probably exaggerating a tiny little bit. Or my imagination just went wild. I just couldn’t resist when I spotted the swallow in this picture of two llamas running away in a field on the Rhinns of Islay.
