CommentMum feeds her three juvenile Welcome Swallows. I have chosen this shot as it clearly shows natural feeding behaviour. I have captured the moment with beaks open to receive food and Mums wings beautifully spread as she hovers to deliver her catch. All heads are sharp and the wings soft but clearly in movement to illustrate the action. The bokeh is water creating nice contrast and has been creatively enhanced using a Topaz Impressions filter.
