What’s good: Birds instead of bugs

A swallow chases bugs over the Raritan River.

Last night while I was watching the sun go down along the river, I noticed bugs hitting the water. The little circles they were making looked like rain drops hitting the river. So tonight I went to the Raritan River in Manville where I thought the setting sun would be shining on the water in hopes of photographing the bugs and circles. There were plenty of bugs and circles, but I couldn’t make a picture I liked. There were swallows there for the bugs too, but they wanted them for dinner. The swallows were making sharp turns as the strong sunlight illuminated their wings. I didn’t get the bug photo I wanted but came away happy with a bird shot.
