Swallow on a rope

Picture of a swallow sitting on a rope, just looking at the camera. It's difficult to catch one, I did in the town of Elburg.

Many, many times I’ve tried to take a picture of a swallow. On a warm day when the rain is gone, there are dozens behind my house. Trying to take their photo in flight is almost impossible, and they don’t sit still alot. Usually they will hide under the roof and you can’t get a picture. This photo was taken in in the harbor of a little town called Elburg. This bird was sitting on a rope of a boat, just staring at me. It allowed me to get close enough to take the photo. Elburg is a tourist village, the bird is probably used to strange men with cameras.
