Some photos today from a recent trip out to Chincoteague Island on the eastern shore of Virginia, just south of the Maryland border. Along with the usual compliment of egrets and herons, there were some other interesting sightings on that particular day.

What can only be described as a swarm of tree swallows kept flying around a stand of trees as I photographed some snowy egrets. Eventually, several of the swallows perched on the telephone line above my head and I just clicked away happily gathering some wonderful reference material!
