Nesting Cliff Swallows-up close & personal

I was able to get fairly close to some nesting Cliff Swallows and with my 12X digital camera got some very close-up shots. In the top pic, this Cliff Swallow was looking out from inside the nest. The pale foreheads of these birds make them appear to be wearing visors.
In the bottom pic, this Cliff Swallow has an insect in its beak, has flown up to its nest and is getting ready to feed its nestlings. Be sure to double-click on each photo to enlarge them as this really shows details nicely.
