62/365 Growing baby birds

Much to the chagrin of Mama Bird, I peeked in on these newly hatched baby birds that are nesting in Mom and Dad's grapevine.

Mama B couldn't have chosen a better photo-accessible site for me if we'd chatted beforehand. I was able to peer in at the nest without touching any of the plant around it. She never stopped squawking at me from a few feet away, so I made my photo as fast as I could, then left them alone.

Until they can fly, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that the babies stay in the nest and away from the jaws of the Great White Hunter.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/4 at ISO 125 at about 6:00 p.m.
