And here's the object of his affections.
These photos leave a lot to be desired, but the little redstart was so cute - he was trying to be brave, but he would hop close then flit away.
There are barn swallows living under the roof of the entrance gate at the park. I made a few shots when we were going in, but I was trying to hurry and handhold looking way up, and I didn't get anything worth putting on. Next time, I'll set up properly. There were 3 little nestlings in one nest, just looking over the side of the nest.....so beautiful!
