Feeding the Young

Feeding the YoungFeeding the YoungI am so happy to have had the experience of watching these tree swallows gathering bugs and feeding their nestlings. I'm also happy that I was able to capture this moment and share it with you all. The swallow would fly up to the house where a nestling was anxiously waiting to be fed with a mouth wide open. The adult swallow would then stick his/her beak inside the open nestling's beak to deliver the meal (bolus of bugs that were caught). The nestling would go inside and a new nestling would stick his/her head out and wait for a meal. These two parent swallows worked very hard flying around the field gathering bugs and delivering meals. I watched them for a good hour and captured several images. Here is one image showing the busy papa or mama delivering a meal. I love nature, I love capturing these moments, and I love sharing the images and experiences with you all to enjoy.
