Default Thanks, Torgny

Hi my friend!

Lovely series showing the beauty in nature, and thanks for the wikipedia link too. Interesting reading!

I particularly admire photo 5, with the "row" of nest holes as the "subject" seeming quite aligned, as well as the wildflower colour as a base (at the bottom of the photo)! But all are good!

Cheers

Paul

Paul,

Yes, they do quite a bit of work and repairs too; sand falling in. Know you like surveys. Here is one

Cheers

Addition, distant but perhaps instructive pictures of the swallows themselves. They are very, very quick, but I managed to get some exposures yesterday, when they fed themself with very tiny flies, or perhaps mosquitos that live innumerably in the area
