Like many others, I still have mixed feelings about drone photography. That is until I came across this photo by Jon Rohan from chicago!
Coming near a Swallow to photograph it in flight is near impossible. They’re so small and dart through the air at such high speeds, Master aerial feeders.
I’ve only seen the silhouette of a swallow in children’s books, when I was a child myself. This little bird with its forked tail.
First real sighting was here in chicago few summers ago. Sitting in the yard before sunset. Their song and flight pattern changes that time of the day. I joked that it looks and sounds like they’re calling their kids to come in before it gets dark. And after I researched it I found out that is exactly what they were doing.
And as I still have mixed feelings about drones, this photo is the closest I’ll ever come to one in flight.

Next tattoo inspiration? Maybe!
