The photo looks perfect to me. Having the behavior is always great.   Posted: 07/02/2024 17:12:42

Such ugly little not-duckings, but so wonderful a capture. Mom (or dad) is a protective presence. Good color, good focus, good cropping. All in all a great shot.   Posted: 07/02/2024 20:28:32

Gorgeous capture. The positioning of the parent and the chicks is perfect, and I know how difficult it is to achieve that! One to be very proud of!   Posted: 07/11/2024 02:42:48

Great capture. Only a minor observation as I prefer the composition with a little more room around the main subject. On this occasion I would have tried a horizontal composition, I think the image could benefit a lot.   Posted: 07/12/2024 08:51:12
