Taken at the Claremont Park. Just happen on these two birds. Actually it was their chirpy type of communication that made me notice them. Mother trying to feed her hungry chick. She flew out and back several times before I captured this one. I did not notice the framing from the tree until a few minutes later.

auto levels, USM, clone out bird doo.
cropped, resized for web.

Thanks everyone for voting, I and the birds appreciate your support. Like I said earler, I did not see the framing until a few minutes after the shot was taken. I was a spectator for a few minutes. I was about 20 feet away and the birds were about 15 feet high. I had wished that it would have been a much clearer and sharper capture, as I was taking the shot into a shady area.
So thanks, and see you next time.

Hi Buddy!
I'm thinking of getting my hands on Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II for my Canon 20D. How good this lens is?
Thanks.

Oh how sweet! I'd zoom in on the birds and maybe crop out some of the tree. Nice capture!

Wow - brilliant scene. The question is - where's the food? Has the baby already had it and is now asking for more? Well done 7

So adorable. Really great shot. I like how the little birds framed by the little hole and the bigger birds framed by the bigger circle. Lots of framing in this one. :)

Oh my how did you get this one!!! You have to try again for "Birds" this is a very good shot for it. But for frames it is even better! Love it!

It meets the challenge and was a very fortunate capture. It is not the most vibrant shot in the world but for the purpose of this challenge, should do well. Good luck!

Wonderful moment to capture. You must have waited a long time for this one. I like the muted colors and the bright yellow of the beaks. I wish we could see the eye of the mama bird a little more clearly, but don't know if that would be possible to do.

Totally awesome pic. I got goosebumps when I first saw it and again when I really _saw_ the little baby bird.
