We had lots of rain and high winds and for a while there the humidity broke and I was able to open up the windows and air out the house from being closed up with the AC on . All the rain we got was well and truly welcomed , not as much as they had predicted for our area but just right for our valley and river that is now back up to its proper level.
We have a family of Barn swallows that love to sit and feed their babies every summer on the big sire outside our house and I love watching them and of course taking their photos .
This later in the season baby , there was three but this little fellow seemed to stay put the longest for me which was a chore for him as the winds were blowing him about .
He just sat there as Mama Barn swallow swooped sored and dived after food in the air for them all . My they are fast talk about your fast food on the run lol .
I do believe this is to a baby or a juvenile of the earlier part of the summer as Barn swallows tend to stick together as a family .
The adults seem to have a shiny blue metallic back as this one still has black so that tells me he is coming to adult hood soon .
I also love hearing them chatter as they sit and fly about , quite the acrobats in the air as well !
As the sun set more and more into the western horizon and shone in the east and south of the valley I saw the moon bright and beautiful to the south . How crisp clear and fresh the air is and the sky looks after big storms .
The moon was shining the land was quieting down for the night well ok peepers and crickets were chirping but birds and all were all a hush lol . A small bird possibly rushing to his home after a long day out and about in the lower far left of the photo as the sun set shines on him .
The evening falls in more and more the sun now down on the horizon as a thin layer of cloud whisks in front of the moon and I to go in before I get eaten alive by skitters lol !
Until next time .
