Thanks for all of you, to AshishNimkar, I make true ID when I spotted it for a first time so I wonder you said "I think ID is Common Swift" About the distance it is about 3.5m and for the place you can see the map, sure I have other photos but I upload a photo of this species that didn't resemble any other photo of it on the internet
