I had only arrived in Tasmania a few hours before I took this shot. After getting off the Spirit of Tasmania I found a picnic area beside a creek to have some lunch. I noticed some Welcome Swallows flying around so I took the camera out of the bag. As I approached closer I could see that this female swallow was busily catching insects to feed her young. It was a fascinating sight that I am so glad to have witnessed – I ended up watching these birds for a good hour before I had to set off on my Tasmanian adventure.
