These birds are very swift in flight and difficult to photograph. I managed only a long shot of these birds all these days.

Under body is light colored and has spots. red-rumped-swallow_dsc7840

This winter these birds were sunbasking I caught them on my terrace. All birds were courteous enough to pose for me, so that I could work on my composition. I took these shots Using Tamron 70-300mmVC. red-rumped-swallow_dsc7849
