What a yawn...I guess all that swooping during hot, humid weather can tire out a Barn Swallow.

That's a beauty. They are very attractive birds with and without the beaks open.
I once watched a Fantail sitting and flicking its head about when suddenly it plucked a flying insect clean out of the air. No movement off its perch
Probably not what's happening here?

Thanks so much, Richard! Watching your Fantail must have been amazing. I think the Barn was just tired as it stayed for a long time on its perch, preening mostly. I was shooting nonstop when it opened its mouth and probably would have got an insect...man, what a shot that would have been!

Eurasian Curlew protecting its turf from annoying Myna bird, was rather far away and sun had just set had to pull up exposure somewhat in post.
