After the smoke clears...

This little swift resides in one of the guns at Antietam.

After all of the noise, smoke, and hoopla of artillery weekend and other such events, it's business as usual for this brilliantly blue bug biter. The cozy bed of feathers down the muzzzle probably conceals a clutch of hatchlings. I'll keep an eye on developments.
I'll keep you posted.

Hi Mannie, -- You've got a dynamite blog and job. Congratulations on becoming a full-time ranger. My interest in the Civil War started while visiting Sharpsburg. I ended up on a tour with Ted Alexander. Please tell Ted that Kevin Levin says hello and both of you may be interested in my own blog called Civil War Memory:

Good Luck
