Lots of photo opportunities as they had clearly 'accepted' me!
And feeding on the submerged crop....
One individual having a preen!
And eventually, close enough for close up crops!
I had hopes of trying to photograph every individual but with them criss crossing, I settled for a random approach.
Indigestion inducing quite big tuberous roots... attempts at swallowing!
A common problem!
Getting two in focus was a challenge!
But finally lead to the images of the session!
Images of the juveniles to follow and I finally managed to get an accurate count of the family groups! Coming shortly!
