It's been a long, long time since I posted here.  I went to New Mexico in December.  I enjoy Bosque del Apache and the surrounding area.  I saw one Cactus Wren up in the scrub tree. I slowly drove up and when I got my camera to shoot out of the window......there were two. Nice early morning light with some mountains in the BG.

Great image Lana. Nice poses they gave you, and their position in relation to one another is also very pleasing. Nice work bumping up that aperture and getting both birds sharp. TFS
Thanks for looking,

Lana, what a lovely double take, great how they are looking in the same direction, and that we get both a front and back view.  Gotta love that straddle pose on lower bird.  Nice natural look and gorgeous BG rounds out this beautiful frame.

As a birder, I love how we get one front view and one back view. It really permits study of the field marks on this species. Very well done!

You have been missed Lana!  Great to see your work again and what a treat this is.  The alternate view poses make this special and as always you have captured them superbly.  Love it! :D

Great composition and neat to have two with quite different poses in the frame, Lana!
