Sailing on the Chesapeake #4

By handlerstudio  
Spotted on the sailboat in the next slip, early in the morning. I believe this is a swallow....they flit and fly around really fast, almost like bats. Perched on the rail, in front of the dodger at the front of the cockpit. They are hard to catch...particularly in the air.

They certainly do move quickly - usually end up a blur in my attempts - well captured.
