What a striking image Diana. Logged back in just to post. An amazing sighting. Must be viewed uncompressed to enjoy and so glad you left the bg off post and fencing as ads a great deal of context. Quite wonderful.
Make your life spectacular!

How wonderful and unique! All of them sharp and what great expressions. And all looking in the same direction. Amazing! This really tickles my fancy!

Really nice family portrait. The Family patriarch must be on the high perch.

Thanks for all of your comments! I’ve always wanted to capture a shot like this so was thrilled to get the opportunity. As is usually the case with birds, this lasted just a moment and then they one by one flew off!

What a great capture!! Such a fun and unique image of these little rockers! Sure wish that fence wasn't in the BG but you take them as they come. Well done
