Caption: Barn swallows (Hirundo rustica) skim across an Ohio meadow near sunset snatching insects on the fly. These agile aerial acrobats can reach speeds of 50 kph and can turn in an instant. The barn swallow is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. They migrate to South America in the fall, returning to breed the following spring.
