Nesting in Ritto City

Swallows were building a nest in my garage on June 8, 2013. It is very late for nest building. Seven years ago there was a nest in the same place. Five young swallows grew up in May and flew for the first time in early June.

The video was made with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera and two lenses: an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ (kit lens) and a very old (mid-1980s) OM System Zuiko f1:3.5-4.5 35-105mm zoom (with OM Adapter MF-2).
