Barn Swallow Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: A very common sight from late spring through early fall, Barn Swallows are often seen flying around in search of insects, or just hanging out on barbed wire fences and other perches. My favorite photo is the one below, where I'm getting a little bit of attitude from one on a barbed wire fence. From May 2019 in Lincoln County, South Dakota.
