Young swallows are almost ready to fly on June 8, 2014. They take turns stretching and beating their wing furiously. Their parents continue to feed them as other swallows enter the car port and get them.

Technical notes

Video clips were shot with an Olympus OM-D EM-5 camera and an old OM-System Zuiko Auto-S (manual focus) 50mm f1.8 lens. Settings: ISO 800, f11, 1/60 second. The light meter read +1.0-1.3 EV. Two small LED lights provided back and fill light.
