This was one of those ‘did that just happen moments.’ This pair of tree swallows were perched
on this old stump doing absolutely nothing for the longest time. Being that I just got my camera
back from a friend who had borrowed it for a trip; I figured this is a nice subject to get my settings
readjusted. I began with a couple of stills and without any indication otherwise these two swallows
began a noisy 3-4 second ballet just over their perch and then promptly returned to their prior ‘doing
nothing’ position on the stump; it was as if this ballet never happened. I didn’t even know I got the shot until reviewing the photos later in the day. So was it a dance or perhaps a spat? We will never know.
