Tree Swallow with an Attitude

Yes, the swallows have, well, actually they returned a few weeks ago and I just forgot to post this picture. And no, they don't just return to San Juan Capistrano.

This specimen (a male I think) clearly seems to think it's superior to me. This is surprising because I've often noted that swallows don't seem too bright: they spend the whole day basically chasing each other in circles. That's all day, every day. Yet somehow, I'm the low guy.
