A superb capture, wonderful colour and poses. They look like they may be having a family argument............Sandy

Thanks all.

Thanks Terry for the GEA.

Apparently not a pair as such, so can not confirm if in any way a family squabble.

Great timing and an excellent composition. Very well captured.

Thanks all.

Not an easy shot to get as both birds were on the edge of the frame using the 500mm so I had to shift the tripod back a few inches to fit them in! Then trying to get a focus point in the right place and recompose with them moving around did not help. So I set the aperture to f/10 and pretty much hoped for the best. Worked out not too bad on about 4 frames.

With Looking at it Cheryl, The male has got a white tip to it's beak, which would symbolize the juvenile.. But wouldn't be 100%, We'd know straight away, with the colour of his feet.., An Amazing capture anyway !

Hi Luke, not sure on the white tip as he had just been pecking at the lichen, so what you are seeing in this shot could just be that rather than a white tip to the beak as such. I'll review some of the other shots to see if he is a juvenile.

Thanks all.

Won't have time to process any others this week so you'll have to wait for any future instalments Wink

Great to see two in one shot - even if they might not be a pair - you've done well in having to recompose and in discribing the difficulty encountered - Ina
