Gorgeous!

Like cranky old blokes in cheap penguin suits at a fancy-dress party they didn't want to attend.

Wonderful eyes
Love it!
They really are funny looking chicks. Little balls of fluff. Good one Nigel.
I love it! I was laughing before the image finished down-loading! Wonderful capture!

OMG - who's hungry!!?
Nice! One frigted face or hungry face and one sleepy face. Question... I saw you used f/2.8 was it forced by the light intensity or was it chosen especially.
Nigel Clack: Hi Romain, I chose 2.8 to help reduce the effect of the bars of the aviary. Cheers, Nig.
from the thumb I thought they were socks..... with eyes..
he he
great stuff!!
Cheers

Nigel Clack: LOL smile
Perfect timing! Think about cropping this to a vertical, removing the owlet on the right. This focuses ALL our attention on that wonderful expression.

Spot on with the timing, Nigel.. Mr Grump on the right looks a bit down, though!
