Scotland (1) - Swallows

This is the first installment of six and I'm hoping I will have saved the best till last.

The following shots where taken at the Mull of Galloway, the most south westerly point of Scotland, and a beautiful place it is too.

I was hoping to get more sea birds, but they where just too far out at sea, the few shots I got you will sea in the following posts.

Hope you like the Swallow shots.


  1. Beautiful shots! I do love swallows. They seem to have to much personality

  2. If these aren't the "best" we certainly have a treat in store at the end! Love the second shot...I can hear the one on the left saying "I'm not listening to you" while the one of the right goes on, and on, and on....

  3. The swallow pictures are very dramatic and you can almost hear the dialogue that must have erupted between them :-) I like these very much; they are lovely!

  4. Great shots of the swallows. They look a lot like our Barn Swallows.

  5. Hi Mike, thanks for the comment on my blog!
    Your shots of the swallows have so much personality! They are a beautiful bird!! Very, very, nice!

  6. Hi Mike! I love this entry. Your pictures are awesome. We have four nesting pairs at work. I have tried to get good pictures of them, but they haven't been that accommodating. I am hoping once the babies hatch, I can get some of them. Thank you again. Lisa

  7. Hi there Mike :-)

    What fantastic shots of the swallow! I can't imagine what the best is going to be - are you going to give us a clue?

    Have a great week :-D

  8. Hi Evryone, thanks for your comments,

    Hi Shirl, I hope i'm not building this up too much, but they have feathers (normally) ;-)

  9. How beautiful! I love swallows. I've been seeing some different varieties here this year.
