Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Swallow Bomb

There is some serious nesting going at the front gate. Six swallows were trying to occupy one house. It got very busy!

 Mid air duels
 Precision flying

 Violation of the basic rule of physics: Three bodies cannot occupy the same space at the same time
 Wanna bet?

 Now, buzz off!

Aww. You need more boxes! Swallows are funny things. We have five identical boxes scattered around the fields. Every year a pile of swallows comes through, and every year only 2 pair stay. Maybe 3. And they fight over the same boxes! The others are left empty. Who knows...

They have the sweetest faces!

Wow, you definitely caught the action. We have a pair of swallows that fight the bluebirds each spring by garden 1 and 2. Swallows got box 1 and the bluebirds reside at box 2 and all is well with the world. I love the wing shots.
