I love watching the Barn Swallows dash about and play in mid air as they are tweeting and chatting away . I heard our Barn Swallow I named Barney carrying on like mad almost in a fit type character so I went to investigate and thankfully I had taken my camera with me as I was taking photos to begin with of other things . Well to my surprise there were three baby Barn Swallows siting up on the wires across the road .
Just stretching and looking about . I thought awe how cute , just stay there so I can snap a few photos guys , then all of a sudden Barney comes whipping along tweet, tweet frantically and fly's right over and pass me almost all at the same time WOW ! they are fast , then I saw one of the babies lean forward and open his mouth, well to my surprise again Barney was on a fly by feeding frenzy to her babies , talk about fast food lol .
The first few times I missed the shots but then I got to know when Barney was coming to them as they would flap their little wings in excitement and lean forward to follow where she was and who she was going to go to just before she got to them .
It was amazing to watch all this let alone be able to capture it all !
At times I was in such awe of it all I had forgotten I was taking photos and missed some captures lol !
But I am please with the captures I did get as these birds are a challenge to photograph flying as they dart back and forth to and fro let alone feeding their babies in mid air on a fly by at the same time ! It was a good weekend filled with puttering and watching lots of Mama’s and their babies . Mrs Robin is on her second batch of babies in the nest on top of our porch light and lots of other Mama’s feeding babies about the yard !
Oh the wonders and beauty of nature !
