For those of you who celebrate...Evening Grosbeaks have come to our property for the last 30+ years. The parents feed sunflower seeds to their young -always a joy to watch. This is a juvenile fluttering and begging from his dad.

Various Topaz adjustments.

A beautiful image Cynthia, beautifully composed and treated.
The interaction between the two subjects is very nice, you are privileged to be able to witness scenes like these.

So sweet!  The chick looks almost as big as dad, but its happy to still be fed as long as dad is willing.  A gem of a precious scene with wonderful interaction, and so appropriate for today.  :)

Great Father's Day type of image. The photo itself is very nice, and your treatment of it makes it a real work of art.

Thank you Carol! We've noticed that the chicks often look bigger and fluffier than their worn-out parents!

Topaz seems to be the main staple for this forum, and you have shown why with this lovely and intimate rendition of the parent Grosbeak feeding its young.
