I'd never before noticed such a huge group of swallows.  They stayed out over the water only for a short time, and then all headed back towards the trees and grasses. 1/640sec, f5.6, ISO400

I've been lucky enough to capture some decent photos of both the northern rough winged swallow, and this cliff swallow.  I've definitely seen some barn swallows in the mix as well, but I haven't managed to get any photos of them yet. 1/1000sec, f5.6, ISO640.
