    Yeah, I know. Underexposed and noisy (ISO1600 at dawn), but I liked the looks on their faces ...

    Yes, compared to your other bird photos (including "BIF"-photos ;)), this one leans towards the "bloopers" somewhat, but you are right: you best NOT discard this one as it compensates for every technical flaw by the scene you captured! They sooo seem to be gossiping! :D

    It was this image that convinced me to try auto-ISO. If it had been cranked up a bit further, the shot would have been much better. I find now that auto-ISO is very useful in those early dawn hours when it is almost too dark to shoot handheld with my f/5.6. Anyway, I so loved the expression and the pairing of the birds that I couldn't bring myself to discard it.
