An absolutely wonderful capture.
One of those 'Once in a lifetime pictures' and well worth an UA.

Three cracking shots of this double act, Lillian, and I particularly like the second version with the right hand bird peeking round the trunk to see what it's companion is about.
As always from you top notch photography in every respect.
A joy to see.
