Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

It's Straight Out of the Camera Sunday time, a meme from Murrieta 365.  There are two rules:  1) photo must have been taken by you, and 2) no tweaking (cropping allowed).


This family of barn swallows has grown so much that they built apartments, resting places, and another nest under the front porch.  I think there were 5 sets of babies, 4 for sure.  They come back every year to the same place to increase their family.  Don't you just love the little "bandits" peering over the edge of the nest?

Until next time, God bless.

Great capture, and so great of you not to destroy their nest. You must live near the special mud they need.

Jan, there is no special mud needed...if there is 10 drops of rain, these little birds will find it to build a nest under the eaves of my house. :D

Those swallows are cute but they sure are messy, LOL!

Awe, how darling! I like how you can just see their little heads peaking over the top of the nest.

It always amazes me when I see these little guys.

The moms and dads are so acrobatic!

Oh they are so cute. It looks like they were almost big enough to leave the nest.
