One swallow doth not a summer make –
– but here in PPF’s garden, a whole family of them makes for a fabulous summer…
Late one evening, earlier this month, Jill and I spotted several young swallows lined up on the fence at the back of our swimming pool. We wondered what was going on.
And then ‘whoosh’! – suddenly, their mother swooped in across the pool and got them all excited, obviously in anticipation of dinner.
And then she started feeding them – on the wing! Isn’t Mother Nature wonderful?!
We liked the expressions of the three who missed out on this run!
For the technically curious : the images were captured with an 80-400 Nikkor @ 400mm, Matrix metering, Manual mode, 1/400th sec @ f5.6, ISO Auto (the actual ISO used by the camera for the three images was 1100, 900 and 1100 respectively)
By the way, this is posted ‘early’ as we’re on an ‘R&R’ holiday during August and so there’ll be no further Blog posts after this, until September 🙂
