Here’s a group of photos I took at a Barn Swallow nest, which was built on a light fixture in the covered portion of the parking lot where I work.

I posted this photo the other week as part of a story about the Eastern Bluebirds being back at Mather Meadows in Darien, Conn.

It occurred to me that the photo has the potential for a funny caption. I’ll leave that part up to you _ post a comment, or send me an email at bozclark@earthlink.net
