I took this shot at Cantigny Golf in Wheaton, IL, where they have perching wires by the bridges specifically for barn swallows. The swallows nest under the bridges. I like this bird’s rich colors, ruffled feathers and the mud on its feet and bill (presumably from nest building). I used a Nikon D90 with a 300mm lens.
