Chimney Swift Photos

I've never even tried to shoot photos of Chimney Swifts before, because the only time I'd ever seen them was when they were in flight.  But a friend found some roosting in a chimney (appropriately!) at the USGS facility where we both work.  Very cool to see and hear them at extremely close range.
