    I was having my lunch on the balcony & watching the parents feeding the babies on the wire. When I finished lunch I got the camera to shoot some pics & the parents & two babies flew off leaving two behind who did not seem to mind us looking @ them from only about 15' away.

    Sweet! Given how fast swallows fly (and that the adults can get a mite tetchy if you get too close and may dive bomb you), these are shots you may not easily come by again.
