Swallow Sibling Rivalry - Reifel, British Columbia (Explored)

    Newer Older

    This is another shot of the swallow's nest. In the shot, the mom (or dad) is about to feed one of the chicks while, at the same time, keeping an eye on me. However, what I really like is the expression on the other chick's face. It is clearly unhappy about being passed over by mom. Don't feel sorry for it. Mom fed the chick on her previous visit. Chicks have short memories. :) The photo was taken in July 2012, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

      Sweet shot! Fed or not that left chick looks so sad with those pitiful little head feathers
      sticking up. At least Mom has a good memory!
