swallows

Some time ago I went to Plum Island in the Spring, just as the usual swarms of flying insects were in full force.  It was miserable for people but a feast for the large flocks of swallows.  Groups of hundreds would come in and attack a tidal pool, doing their acrobatics and just generally being amazing,catch as many bugs as possible, then move on to the next place on the itinerary.

Here are a few that were resting, and watching me be chased back to my car by mosquitos.
