Purrrdy!!!!! Nice capture on the fem! I find them hard to photograph--they don't come around as often as the males do and they tend to be more shy when they do come.

Barn swallows don't seem to mind busy places. I hope you manage to get some pics of the babies!! They're adorable. I've never managed to get any pics, though.

Here's a few of the phoebes that just fledged:

Maybe nine days after hatching:
