    I have a photo I would like to submit. How do i send it in and do I have to give up ownership rights if I send it in?

      Martha, click on the last link in the post, the one for the photo contest — that page explains how to submit your image and what rights the Conservancy has over it when you do.

    This is a wondrful picture of two swallows. Good close up and they look so cute together.

    These two are adorable! Granted I very much enjoy looking at ALL bird photographs–but there is something about these two that makes me smile! I think it’s my Valentine card for this year! thanks for sharing with us
