Description

In July 2008 I was at Woodley Island Marina photographing water birds when I spotted swallows flying around the rocks along the shoreline. I went to investigate, and found several families, with parents flying in and feeding their babies. I moved to the water’s edge and got down low to get the sky as background, and got this great shot just as a parent (I believe a male), while still in flight, was passing a bug to its baby.
