Swallows - A6 Card

Swallows - A6 Card


These studies of swallow & fledgling remain a favourite in the the Enchanted England range. 

I wanted to capture the movement of the bird in flight and also a more unusual image of a young bird that is nest bound and just about to fledge.

I love these birds that are so evocative of an English summer; they a have great history in rural folk tales and legends.  In the 18th century, Hampshire naturalist Gilbert White, wrote that swallows hibernated in winter; the real journey of their migration to Africa is hardly less miraculous.

Packed in a biodegradable cellophane bag, this card includes a white envelope from recycled paper. This A6 card takes a standard first class Royal Mail stamp and is left blank for your own message.
