Breaking a rather long drought (sorry Chase, had to end sometime)...

Took this over the weekend. Carol's Aunt & Uncle live in a 80+ year-old house complete with 80 acres covered in old buildings including several shops and a dairy barn (now retired).

I didn't have a lot of time because of the wedding, but I did manage to sneak down to the barn and shoot this.

As I was walking up the steps to the hayloft I saw a flash out of the corner of my eye. It was momma bird delivering chow. There was a hole in the wall next to the stairs that I could shoot through.

The nest is attached to the side of a floor joist for the loft. Available light was from underneath (what little there was). Shot taken at about 6-7 feet using the flash.

I knocked on the joist to wake them up. They weren't actually making any noise, just waiting for something to eat.

Thanks all, I luck into way more good ones than I ever plan.

Darren, swallows I think. I was too busy ducking Momma dive bombing me when I tried to get closer to notice for sure. :wink:
