The Himalayas are home to numerous Birds which can rarely be seen in other parts of India.
I spotted this Barn Swallow swinging amongst the clouds in Mussoorie, Uttrakhand ,India, which is located at an altitude of 6000 feet ( 2000 metres approx.)
The Western Himalayas at Mussoorie turn into a glorious shade of Green in June.
The Green Trees are themselves covered with numerous blossoms which attracts numerous pollinators ( i.e. insects).
The Pollinators in turn are a feast for these Swallows.
Barn Swallows ( English), Hirundo rustica ( Scientific Name) are experts in picking their prey from the skies.
The plumage of males and female are very similar of this species and thus I will not even attempt to guess the Gender of this one.
I had to stretch my neck backwards to catch a shot of this lovely Swallow, perched high above on a Wire Stretched across the Blue Skies.
Is my Feathered Friend Showing me the Path to what lies Ahead ?
