The little barn swallows that live in their nest on a post by the back door, have learned to fly this week! Their parents were teaching them when I got the chance to try to capture them in photos. It was a joy to watch these little ones leave their nest and I was cheering them on as much as their parents, I'm sure of that. There were actually 4 baby birds in that little nest and the flying barn swallows I captured in these photos were their parents. Such a beautiful family in nature to watch in these past weeks, a simple joy for me.
