This first year Barn Swallow is in a roosting tree with about 50 of it's closest relatives. The background is what I liked most about this image. Pretty basic editing.

Beautiful POV with crisp yet extremely shallow focus on the eye, obligatory catchlight, BG to die for and a lovely composition if a tiny bit tight on the left. Well done on a technically superb bird image.
