About the Image(s)

My husband and I went birding at City Park last Sunday. The highlight of the morning was this mother merganser with her nine ducklings. After she gave them a lesson in diving, one was worn out and hopped on her back for a ride.

Love it! This wildlife image has a nice story and is photographed well. My only suggestion would be to add a bit more space to the right for the family to travel into. Thoughts?   Posted: 06/19/2022 17:50:00

Unfortunately the image appears slightly blurred. Generally speaking, unintentional soft focus does not work well for animals birds etc. Sometimes you can fake it, by super sharpening just the eyes. When shooting hand held, I boost the ISO and shutter speed   Posted: 06/20/2022 12:37:24

Great capture of the motion of the parent duck's hair flying in the wind. Agree with Tom's suggestion to give the family space to swim.   Posted: 06/21/2022 15:31:49
