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!

  1. I've seen this behavior in Violet-green's and tried to get a photo, but failed. Good on you.
