Everything went wrong with this image trying to capture a particular moment. Decades ago I observed cardinals doing ritual feeding. the male gives the female a tidbit, part of pair bonding. I had not read about it, and it startled me as it looks so much like a human kiss.. Ever since I've been trying to capture it, first on film, now on digital. Shooting through a dual glass thermal pane window, as I discovered by testing, really degrades the IQ, but the camera was set up, the birds came, they did it, I snapped, but they were at the wrong angle and I was a tiny fraction too late. So here they are, just AFTER the "kiss." They still look intimate.

Female cardinal, always a welcome visitor. As for the grey one in the background
Nice shot, two for the price of one.

At the moment oyster catchers are popping up on a couple of threads. Here's another hustling so as not to miss the action.
