    Very surreal environment created by the higher shooting angle and the sandstorm.

    I especially like the contrast between the cute, clumsy birds and the harsh surrounding.

    It seems they are on their way to exile

    If not exile, it looks like they are caught stealing. White pockets full of candies :-).

    hahaha, another good interpretation Jaak. You can see they are looking at us out of the corner of their eye ;)
