Recently we went to visit the Mystic Seaport (click here for previous article) again. In one of the old ship restoration barns I noticed some fairly brazen swallows darting through the open doors. They zig zagged around people as only they can.

Up in the eaves small baby swallows lined up waiting for a meal to be delivered.

A scaffold for the restoration was available so we climbed up and photographed them in the queue.

My new Canon 7D mkII is amazing in these situations. I do love my older Canon 70D, but it could never have taken these shots.
