The fluffy time of the year

Very hard to spot, this Tawny Frogmouth family was photographed a couple of months ago in Sydney Botanic Gardens. The father was roosting on a nearby branch and the mother and two chicks were deep asleep most of the time. But patience paid off. They woke up for a while and looked at the camera for a few better shots. Light was quite harsh and the scene backlit with overburned patches of white sky... Not the ideal conditions, but the ideal subjects!
