Setting Sun with Swallow Flyby.
On Sunday 29th January a video was being made of another glorious Mutare sunset when a swallow was recorded making a close flyby in front of the camera set up on my upstairs veranda. The accompanying image, extracted from video, is a perfect capture of a swallow in full flight with a ray of setting sunlight shining through its wing.
