Default Demanding Kids

(if there is an ad, i don't endorse it)

The martins are out full time catching food for the little ones.

The little ones will leave the nest soon.

Pic follows this post.

At first when I saw this in the viewfinder, I thought this was housekeeping. In post I found out it was a snail shell. Calcium for the kids.

I couldn't figure out just what these ladies were bringing to the feast.

Greg, these are nice & sharp, did you shoot them with the 300, also great story telling with the shots.

Another great set. Martins colonize don't they? Do you have a nest box set up for them? We have them out here but i have yet to see one.

Hi Greg,

I've no experience with these birds but your photos show that they are quite a social bird. They also seem to be showing how proud they are of their hunting skills to others in their group.

Very cool.

They are all shot with the 300mm and EC-20 at a distance of about 30 feet. I was using a monopod for support. Most of these are uncropped. It was fun watching them come in and using the lens as a fancy spotting scope with autofocus just to see what they brought in.
