The hairy tapestry sprouts feathers…..

We  host barn swallows each year at the hairy tapestry.They arrive in late March and immediately start scouting real estate, at our house the old nests were deemed too old this year so one enterprising couple decided  to relocate to the right of our front door. After weeks of furious activity the kids made their appearance. “It’s a hang glider! a plane! a pterodactyl! No! It’s mom with a bug!”

Every family has at least one pessimist

” ??, sigh, minemineminemine! Mommurph!”

    I love them. Assuming they have kept their positions, it’s clear who’s never going to go hungry, and who’s the poet in the crowd.

    They did, the three shots were close together. The one on the left is seeking an agent.

    Will the parents always fly in from the right? I empathize.

    Depends where the bugs are, they snatch them on the wing.

    Wonderful photos and wonderful birds. Are cats meowing bass?
