I got a tip that the Purple Martin Swallows were starting to gather at the lake. It was described just as I found it. There were so many of them that it was an amazing sight, especially when they flew off and then flew back. This happened each time they heard a dog bark.
I didn’t have much sunlight left by the time I made it out there so I will try again to get some closer shots. They have beautiful colors that can be seen better in the sunlight.
