Admiring the Sunrise

This couple of Burrowing Owl chicks looked as if they were kissing each other as each would take turns grooming the other. It turned into a pretty heated “make out session”! This is the moment when they stopped- just as the sun was rising (you can see the sunrise in their eyes), and both seemed very pleased and content. I zoomed out a bit to show them in their environment as the light was painting it in beautiful colors.
