Our swallows have been in non stop food gathering mode for their rapidly growing brood. Only four of the chicks are visible here, but there are actually six in the nest. What has surprised me is that honey bees seem to be the primary prey item that they are bringing back to the nest. Thanks for looking.

I love that picture. To me, it is perfect in every way. I once spent almost 8 hours in a barn trying to get one good picture with my P&S. Nothing worthwhile but I really enjoyed the almost non-stop action.

Awesome shot!
Wish I could see the barn swallow nests where I usually go, but they're under a footbridge and I dont feel like jumping in the river with my camera. :)

Thanks! Took a lot of repetition and a bit of luck to get that moment. :D

Thanks Harvey, I have to say that I've wished the same on a number of your shots. :D
