    Back to the beach

    Almost forgot to share these guys. They were taken on my vacation.
    Funny story...at least to me. I went to the beach one day, as I am walking towards the beach...nature calls. Entering the restroom I hear these little swallows and of course my call can wait.
    I fallow the sound and wouldn't you know it....they have nested directly above the women's door! How am I going to get this shot without looking like a pervert with a camera?
    Thankfully a women walked towards the door and heard the noise and asked what it was. When I told her....she offered to stand there pointing so I did not get arrested. lol

    Thanks guys, they were very good models. Just after I took a couple shots a couple left the nest. I believe they were less than a full day from being on their own.
