Baby Barns (Swallows)

A group of newly fledged Barn Swallow chicks hanging out on rocks and posts along a bridle path in Kennebunk Maine. Taken with a Canon SD1400IS Digital Elph behind the eyepiece of a ZEISS DiaScope 65FL and 85FL at equivalent focal lengths in the 2000-4000mm range.

This one has a sun gleam off moving water behind its head…looking very like a full moon.

Processed in Lightroom. Recovery, added Fill Light, Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint considerably right. Sharpen narrow edges preset.
