Hi everyone!

I'm a sysadmin from Perth (Western Australia), and keen photographer. I rarely manage to get out of the metropolitan area, but we have a wonderful variety of wildlife right on our doorsteps.

For example...
Hirundo neoxena, or Welcome Swallow, shot at a jetty on the Swan River, just a couple of minutes' walk from my office, and taken during my lunch break.

Three Welcome Swallows, one landing

You can also find me on G+ - where I have a collection dedicated to nature - https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/IauoY - including many of my better shots.

I just get a No Entry sign (and trying in a Private tab, I get the alt text, but not the image).

Now I see them! Cute. I didn't know you had different-coloured swallows in Australia.

Oh, that's a wonderful picture, I love it - the moment you captured, the composition, the colours. I'd never heard of this species before (what a lovely name!) but I do love swallows in general.

What a gorgeous photo. It's interesting to read about your local swallows, too! They look so much like the local barn swallows that I had to go back and read your location again.
