P1000 - Dear Guests
10

Since many years I didn't see swallows near our house. However yesterday came nine of them: it seems to be two adults with juveniles:

In the image above you see seven of them and a sparrow that wasn't impressed at all (and reciprocally); two other juveniles were on another cable several meters away. I tried closeups to them:

- one just stayed a little confused:

-the other was exercising his wings:

Thank you for looking,

Augustin

Thank you very much, Joe my friend!

It was, like always, pure luck; I just struggled to keep the camera steady

Stay safe and happy shooting,

Merit goes entirely to the camera; my only contribution was to try to keep it steady, because it wasn't time enough for my tripod

Stay safe and happy shooting,

I took several shots to those juveniles, and by pure chance I caught one of them with his wings up

Unfortunately the swallows didn't appear again, probably they have the nest somewhere else and came here during a training fly

Swallows cover enormous distances in their migration...

All the best and stay safe,
