Colorful Violet-green Swallows

If you ever wondered why they named these 'Violet-green' these photos will demonstrate that those these birds are violet, blue and green colored.
I took these photos with super zoom and then cropped them a little more to get these close-up views. The weather was a little snowy so light was poor but the birds were perching longer due to the cold weather. This was the day of our big late snowstorm that caused 'fall-out' conditions so there were a lot of swallows that were forced down during their migration. SeEtta
