Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) by alabang, on Flickr

The barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In Anglophone Europe it is just called the swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".

There are six subspecies of barn swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere. Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina, the Cape Province of South Africa, and northern Australia.[2] Its huge range means that the barn swallow is not endangered, although there may be local population declines due to specific threats.

The barn swallow is a bird of open country which normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures and feeds on insects caught in flight.[4] This species lives in close association with humans, and its insect-eating habits mean that it is tolerated by man; this acceptance was reinforced in the past by superstitions regarding the bird and its nest. There are frequent cultural references to the barn swallow in literary and religious works due to both its living in close proximity to humans and its annual migration.[5] The barn swallow is the national bird of Austria and Estonia.

The next important thing is to get a worthwhile subject to photograph.

$90.95  ;D

No, it fell even lower than CR was quoting. I got mine for US$ 88.95 from B&H.   ;D

It's crazy cheap considering how much you could sell them for if you did not want to use them.

See? Hi - f-ing way robbery!

Haha, good one.
Considering the price was last May it should be $80+ now.

I hope that by this time next year the 128GB 1066x card will be about $110+.

If I were a new camera buyer I'd take a serious look at mirrorless cameras and ignore SLRs unless I wanted to break into sports & wildlife.

So I do believe the forecast.

Some years back I was laughed up before about smartphones eating into the entry level point & shoots market and yet today we see it is has had a great feast. :)

If Canon & Nikon are smart they would start offering SLT bodies similar to Sony in the transition to mirrorless.

It is better that Canon & Nikon make themselves obsolete rather than Sony, Fuji and other mirrorless camera makers.

I think people just want to buy more toys that they can say is "superior" to the competition.

All I want is a 5D Mark IV that is equal in features and price to the Nikon & Sony full frame bodies that will come out in 2015.

Is that too hard to ask? :)
