Several families of Swallows (Hirundo rustica) chose to perch on the overhead cables in our lane this morning and were a treat to watch. Each family consisted of obviously two broods - an earlier and a later and the youngest were very demanding, keeping the parents busy, and hilarious to watch! They are obviously getting ready for the long migration flight to warmer climes.
Virtually a full frame capture with just a little cropped from top and bottom.

Many thanks for your support of yesterday's upload. Very much appreciated as alwaysSmile

Brilliant, an image full of great drama, suspense and waiting, certainly an image which lends itself to many possible narratives.
