Swallows blending heaven and earth at Five Mile Bridge in Bidwell Park, in our former home in Chico, California.

Their long pointed wings allow efficient flights and frequent gliding. To me they are simply beautiful and worth getting up early in the morning to run to the bridge and watch their show.
