The new arrivals..

By Sampics
Taken this afternoon at my local castle grounds. Sat for about an hour with the husband and the kids.. Lots of people there, everyone was eager to see these little beauties, lots of bread being thrown in which didnt really seem to attract them ( were probably sick of bread lol ) Then along came an old man with a bag of mixed corn. O my goodness, they loved it! Were able to get resonably close to them then, (about 2 metres away) No need for my usual macro setting on this shot, just a little zoom, photo also cropped. Comments most appreciated as always.
