Lesser Stripped Swallow
Place - Kruger National Park, South Africa

The lesser striped swallow (Cecropis abyssinica) is a large swallow. It breeds in Sub-Saharan Africa from Sierra Leone and southern Sudan south into eastern South Africa. It is partially migratory with South African birds wintering further north. West African birds leave the north of the breeding range in the dry season.

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Lesser Stripped Swallow. The light is bringing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Srikumar,
That's gorgeous. Lights, colors, sharpness and most importantly composition is excellent each. Lovely photo. I'm only lacking the personal touch of your note, which made your previous ones so interesting to read.
Kind regards from the airport (heading back to Ireland after holiday), László
