This is just my point of view, I like the way you managed to get them both looking in the same direction. Perhaps crop the right hand side just a little more, its good you have cropped into a panoramic. It's easy for me to say, as I dont know if it was possible but would of been better if you had got down to their level. Jenny

Double trouble Mya and double the quality; what Jenny says about getting down to their level is a valid point, but, it is not always possible particularly with wild life since you have to take the photographic opportunity when it arises.

Now that winter is on it's way it wouldn't be practical to get down in advance and hope that you get the shot you want, but perhaps when Summer comes around again, you might like to try it and then compare the results.

I always liken it to taking photographs of babies and toddlers, most snap shots are taken from above the child; however, a professional shot is taken at the same level as the child and makes a significant difference.

That said, it is an image I would be proud to my name to; you are coming leaps and bounds, I'll be contacting you for advice in the not too distant future.
