Barn swallow (Hirundo rustica)baby - old photo.
I stumbled upon in search for another photo and it made me smile...
I think I have a thing for sleeping animals...

I'm amazed to see this picture. In my youth we saw groups of swallows every year. Now, I can't remember the last time I still saw one. You have an astonishing wild life were you live. Or, you make a bigger effort to search for it. ;) Great pic.

I love how close you were able to zoom up on the bird. And it is still really clear! I would love to have the camera you have.

Swallows are so sweet =) But they always move so fast that I could never get a photo of one. I guess sleeping solves that problem =D
