I can't look at a shot like this without smiling, Richard! You certainly captured these two beautifully. It looks like both of them got together purposely, just for you to take a photo these two pals. ;-)a

Nice shot of the pair of wood ducks, fotoi.

Thank you.

It's not a photo I'd normally post except for its content.
I'd been watching these two interacting and it was too much to not at least get a record.
These wrens are like that, part of their nature :-)

Well I'm certainly glad you posted it, Richard. I very much enjoy this shot of the two Superb Fairy Wrens side by side.

that's fascinating.
both species have closely similar poses within the specie
Very nice composition.

At least you have two pairs and should fly under LD's radar, else he'd have your guts for garters  :p

Thanks.

There were some sandpipers running around the beach too. I wish one had wandered into the frame. Then I could have had a full poker hand.

Nice image because of the action and timing. Both birds are in focus, the one landing seems upset while the other doesn't seem to care.
