This is great! I didn't vote on the challenge, so I'm sorry for not contributing to your score this time. It's a tack sharp image with awesome light. I'm surprised this didn't score even higher. I love the geometric shape that the babies' beaks make. It must've been fun to see this!

Wow Dawn! This is an amazing shot! I am amazed that this one isn't on the first page! It's so full of a "story" with those two squabbling with each other, and the other one looking on with morbid interest. ..just like people do! Man, I love this! This is going right into my favorites folder!

And it seems I remember you saying on the last day that you had to go out and find something to shoot for this challenge! Even more amazing! You certainly found a good one :)
