Early morning feed- very hard to get these 2 in focus, and good light. Wish the shadows weren't there, but it is rare to capture this event in any kind of light. This seems to be a late brood, or broods- we have about 12 assorted Evenings, some young, some molting. The adult males seem to do most of the feeding. Please click to improve clarity.

This is a rare capture, for sure. We have this species around but I have never witnessed this.

Excellent feeding action and behavior, Cindy. Both birds are sharp and their poses are ideal. And a sweet background to rap it up. Such a fine daddy bird feeding the young.

Nice interaction and excellent DOF to get both sharp...
I think it is a tad bright and could go lower for me.
You did a good job reducing shadows.

Beautiful detail in the uncompressed view, and well done dad looking after his babies! Good work getting both in focus, Cindy, and this is a really sweet capture.
