A very well composed image, Mario. Having a pair of birds here, adds to the appeal of the photograph.

A beautifully designed and well-composed image with the pair looking in opposite directions, and I love how the background complements the birds. The red berries are the perfect finishing touch. Beautifully done, Mario!

I agree with everyone, a very beautiful and well balanced image thanks to the two subjects looking in opposite directions.
