The different colored eyes is amazing. Wonder if the young ones eye color will change. Focus is a little too soft for my taste but I'm sure you must have taken this from a loooooooooong way away :)

Those birds look possitively started. It's amusing. Beautiful as well.

Good heavens! I can't decide if they look scared to death or surprised

WOW! Talk about close and clear. Excellent. I might have tried changing the color of the sky, but thats just personal taste.

Very nice

Very crisp shot! You might've cropped this one differently to omit distractions at the bottom (the stick) and the repetitive sky above.

Man these birds really freak me out with their bug eyes....

The photo could have been in a bit sharper focus to make the birds' eyes sharper
