I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.

  1. Great shots! I’ve seen them at the refuge and they are always difficult to photograph as they fly so fast, or maybe I am not fast enough at the draw! 😜

    1. I know exactly what you mean–Usually I can never seem to capture them. I kept wondering why they were sitting so long there. 😉

  3. Tree swallows are usually also the first swallows to return to our latitudes, Julie. There are a few parks where they raise their young in the nesting boxes provided by volunteers and it’s always a joy to watch them glide through the air in their shimmering attire.

  4. They are stunning in colour and form and how nice for them to settle for long enough to enable you to get these photos!

    1. Thanks. Just today I saw barn swallows for the first time this year. Blue like the tree swallows, but with a reddish throat. Ah, Spring!

      1. Enjoy your spring! We are getting our first wintery weather here this week with snow on the mountains. We get barn swallows here too in the spring/summer. I have just looked up your very beautiful tree swallow and see that it only occurs in north America.
