Today Megan, Weston and I traveled to Slate Run Metropark, one of our favorite haunts in central Ohio. I decided to bring the big heavy lens along, and I was glad that I did. Yesterday, I saw my first barn swallows of 2010, and today, I was able to photograph them. They really are amazing birds to watch- they whipped around the hay fields and in and out of the doors of the pig barn. And when I was standing in the doorway, unknowingly blocking access to their nest they really let me know it. A quick step to the side and I had barn swallows whooshing by at eye level. This individual is resting after all of that work.
