    That is one cute shot.

    Lighting appears odd - the reflection looks very clear though.

    But a pity they are looking in different directions, Joe.

    If they were both facing the same way, one behind the other, this would be a really stunning shot.

    Even face to face would be better. At the moment it seems as though they have had a quarrel and are sulking!

    It does look like they have had an argument. Great capture with a wonderful reflection.

    Their looking away from each other creates its own story, which is quite different to the one where they were facing each other. I like that you have left space on each side for their gaze.

    A moment well captured.

    Thanks Bobo, early morning light... blue sky and clouds refecting on the calm water.

    Thanks Geoff... what you see is part of the story. Why are they facing apart?

    Hello Tony, thank you for viewing and commenting. I concur with all aspects of your comment. The space was intentioinal (negative space). I look at all the websites I can of those who shoot birds. I normally find tightly cropped images showing the species. I am trying to take the images beyond just a tightly cropped shot showing the bird.
