Drop it right here Mom!
The theme of our visit to Little Pond this year? Baby birds. And I mean a TON of baby birds. To the extent I've never seen so many fledglings. I spent about 20 minutes photographing tree swallows before I figured out what they were doing. The youngsters were just hanging out in the tamaracks on the edge of the pond, waiting for a quick transfer from their parents who were hawking insects above the water. Wow, what a cool nature find. With rapid fire action like this, I really had no idea until I looked at this series of photographs. This one told the story!
