I know the first rule is never leave the centre of a shot empty but I was taken by these two Cape Reed Warblers, as they're called locally, admiring their reflections.

LOL it sure does look like they're checking out their reflections, doesn't it Max.

That's a rather nice picture - very well done lad.

I think its great composition Max. They must be admiring themselves because they are too far up to drink (lol). Excellent work!

I love warblers - I can't wait for them to come back every Spring.

Very jealous - great shot!
