15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Sleeping Peepers

We stayed at a campground for about a month where there was a swallow’s nest. I took pictures every day or two to keep track of the progress from egg laying to leaving the nest. This picture is my favorite. Despite being at the entrance to the office and near all the noise and activity, these babies were sleeping through it all.
