Hungry mouths to feed (Welcome Swallow chicks begging to be fed)


I had been observing these Welcome Swallow chicks being raised by their parents, and wanted to capture an image of them in unison begging to be fed. It took numerous frames, several days of patience and a lot of luck to get this delightful image.
