Gorgeous bokeh, tones and textures in this delightful capture Yves. You can sense the fun they're having together as they glean for insects among the branches. And.. like Debra stated, not an easy shot to get either :)

Thanks Heather. Of course I love that bokeh too. This is one of 4 shots where I follow them jumping all over the place. Mother Nature has to help a little for a shot like that.

It’s tough enough to get one Chick-a-Dee to sit still never mind getting two in one image. I really like all the texture in the branch especially against the soft bokeh.

I was looking at those two playing around when they stop on the rotten branches of a wild apple tree to check for some insects.. Same as you Debra, I like the branches and the nice bokeh.
