Violet Green Swallow
Photographer: Nick Rosen
Location: South Tufa area, Mono Lake CA
Violet Green Swallows are a common sight around Mono Lake, however, they are very fast fliers and land infrequently. At South Tufa, I waited around or one to land (on a tufa mound, where they nest) patiently until this one landed close and in good lighting.
