Hello in there...

Is anybody home?
 "are you talking to me?"
 Yeah, you, little one.
Whatcha doin'?
 "just waiting for my lunch"
 Oh yeah? What's for lunch?
 "oh, probably a few flies, mosquito's, maybe a big fat bee if I'm lucky"
 "me and my sister are hungry, I think my mom should be here any second"
 "Look! There she is now!"
 (crunch, crunch, crunch)
 "mmm, nothing like fresh bugs on a summer day!"
 "Thanks mom! You're the best!"
"You always know how to put a smile on my face!"
(These are the violet green swallows that nest at my folks house every year.
They are literally a few feet from the house and as always,
they are a treat to observe.
I photographed them from a distance with my zoom lens as not to disturb them
even though they are quite use to the 'humans' now.)
