I have vivid memories of this scene from my childhood days growing up on the farm. My sisters and I played in the hay loft of our barn and every year there were nests of swallows that filled my days with excitement. I never knew then, nor do I fully understand now, how one mother bird can feed multiple babies in the nest.
Mothers are incredible creatures. I believe they are made with abilities that are beyond the natural; and believe me, if that wasn't true, I don't think I would have made it through some of my own mothering days!
May each Mother be blessed today. May they be seen and valued because of who they are and all they have given.
Happy Mother's Day - May 2009

Looks like you have some hungry critters there. Nice shot of four big mouths ready to eat. Lovely.
