Continuing with one of my final images in this series, both Eastern Bluebird parents ended up staging together on the same perch on their way to feed the quickly growing young. It seemed as if they were deciding on who is going first. In this instance it was the female.

Really nice image, both from the behavioural and artistic aspects. Maybe a tad more DoF would be good, but a sweet image.

Beautiful image, Warren. I love the way their poses link them together, and the detail and light is wonderful!

Nice interaction is right! Both poses look great and I really like the perch and the BG. Exposure and details look clean too. Well done and congrats on the EP
