Fantastic behavioral shot, Tom. They aren't even looking at you.

Awesome capture of these two! They are kind of rare around my area so getting them to "stay put" and two of them to boot is so fortunate!

Fantastic!!! BV

Interesting capture. Maybe they were enjoying the warmth of the road, or thinking of a dust bath, if they do that.

I guess there's a first time for everything! Outstanding capture of this duo Tom~!

Super capture of the pair. Beautiful and well detailed, Tom. ~V
Dave Hawkins15-Aug-2011 23:41
Great catch, they have been watching too many nightjars V
lou_rozensteins15-Aug-2011 23:33
Excellent shot! Do they get roadkill ..... our eagles are forever being hit by cars because they get on the road for dead animals. They can't take off quickly enough even if they see a fast moving car ...... anyway, this is a great shot.
Peter Stahl15-Aug-2011 23:32
Excellent detail on both of them Tom. :-)
