Oh wow, fantastic detail and expression on these guys... I love the dark look of the photograph... ideally it would be better if the leaf were not in front but it would take a lot to detract from this fine image. Wonderful.. I love this. #32610

Thanks Connie, I know what you mean by the leaf, but I had alreaddy taken out several twigs cutting thru the faces. Since these nests are typically buuried deep within the trees I think that the two leaves complements their environment. I had to carefully get my boat in under many branches in order to get this shot made in late afternoon lighting with a bit of fill flash. J.Michael #88998


Nice Photo! The leaf doesn't bother me at all. Sometimes you have to take what nature gives you. #89360
