    This was a tricky shot. A Swallow has buildt a nest under the front porch which has been used every year since. The mother always flies off when anyone come on to the porch, but since she and her babies are left alone, she'll come back.

    Here is a photo of the second hatch of babies this year:

    In case any JPG artifacts show up, I had to reduce the JPG quality down to 50% to get the size right.

    Or would you mind me playing with the picture...??

    And to think they will mature in very nice, graceful birds. ;)
