CommentWelcome Swallows perched up close can be very endearing creatures, as this one is, looking upwards but perhaps just pretending to look upwards and actually keeping an eye on myself. It was a particularly cold morning (even for Melbourne) and it was fluffing itself up to keep warm in the icy wind. The usually abundant mosquitoes around Western Lagoon pools were not yet up and about, so perhaps this Swallow was having to fill in some time before a late breakfast in the air.
