[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A baby Barn Swallow (Hirundo Rustica), just fledged from a mud and twig nest in our barn. It swooped down onto some plywood sheets we had just bought. Sitting jauntily as I took a few photos, parents zooming overhead, it finally fluttered off to a darker corner, much to the relief of mum and dad.

Hello Linda

I love the tufts of feathers on the head.It gives a wonderful dishevelled appearance to the babies.
Awesome pov with excellent dof and sharp focus.
Nicely done.

Superb details on this ugly duckling image :)
Great PoV
The flash is a bit disturbing, but it couldn't be helped here, I am sure
P.S. I tried to reply to your question via my email, but it was returned as "user unknown" -- you might want to double-check the details in your profile to make sure you have not left out a letter in your address somewhere - that has happened before :)
