#4 - I never expected to witness the actual act. The male was on and off her a half dozen times in the span of maybe thirty seconds. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Dan

good stuff, Dan... love the second one in particular. i've seen swallows "doin' the deed" on numerous occasions, even captured some "swallow porn" myself, but i prefer the nice portraits they give you, and the wonderful iridescence of their feathers...

I think #4 is a great capture. They do what they do - that's life, and you caught it perfectly.
