Barn Swallow Mom bringing food to the nest
Barn Swallow Mom bringing food to the nest. The chicks keep both parents very busy. I had set up my camera under a bridge the light was low so I had my flash up. I wanted to capture the moment of mother feeding the chicks. Since I was a super quick affair I had to start shooting slightly before she landed and the flash rendered her like just a shadow and I thought it added drama to the pictures where the chicks are excited
