Today’s Photo of the Day comes from Koustav Maity.

“Three tree swallow babies impatiently wait for their mother to bring food. I spot this tree swallow family at Yellowstone National Park and immediately noticed how hungry the chicks are. As tree swallows are really swift flyer it was very difficult to capture them in the same frame with the babies. After several trials for an hour I was able to capture this shot,” says Maity.

Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage and several images from the Assignment Gallery are picked to be featured in The Best Of Assignments section in the print magazine.
