Great capture of the action! I like the shadow of the tail on the birdhouse. Beautiful bokeh in the background. #1740692

I had to set up a tripod at a hidden distance and start the shutter at 4 photos/sec until the bird emerged from feeding the chicks--otherwise, my reflexes would never have been quick enough to catch this action. It was fun to see this result. Thx #11810049
