No, they didn't live long enough to grow a neck like hers. Next time I went to see them, they were gone. Most likely eaten by the sea gulls that kept a close eye on them right from the beginning :(

How did you get the black background? :)
Reply
:iconkeldbach:
KeldBach Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2016
The black background is actually due to the strong sunlight. When you compensate for that in the camera, everything in the shade turns pitch dark. Hope that helps :)

Glad you like it, Cecily. I didn't expect anything special to happen that day, since the mom was sitting calmly on her nest as usual, but suddenly some activity happened over there and shortly after I saw two small heads appear over the rim. Half an hour later they went out to explore the world :D
