I don't know why, but I love the lighting at dawn. That lighting really gave this photo this atmosphere I can't exactly explain. Like it's the "dawn of time"... pun? Well, it gives it a very good feel. It's soft and whether these birds are related or not, it looks like a family moment I really love this picture. Really good job.
Thanks so much for your kind and thoughtful comments. I, too, love the early morning light, although I would have guessed--because of your DA name--that you like moonlight more. Not that one has to choose between them, of course. They're both beautiful.
