Barn Swallow

Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) also called the common swallow is one of those birds that fly so fast that i really struggled to click their mid air flight photographs.
These photographs were clicked some 200 kms off Gujarat coast in the North Arabian sea. I wonder how these birds came so far into the sea?  The bird has got a glossy blue colour and this makes photographing it difficult in bright background, especially when it comes to bringing out the details of the bird.The birds were majestically gliding in the air turning and twisting catching flies.
