This is looking over the Alum Creek dam, Delaware, Ohio. If you look closely, you can see the swallows zooming around. (I can find 13 swallows, and 1 pigeon). Those birds are fast! And super cute. I looked over the edge and they were a bunch sitting along a ledge all together, but they all took off when they saw me. Some were young, with a few fuzzy feathers left. They are so acrobatic, I wonder if they think it’s fun or just business as usual? As you can see, the cement on the dam had grown a colorful patina reminiscent of a really cool agate or jasper. Usually there is a Blue Heron, or two, standing below, getting a choice selection of fish.
