These ducklings always follow Mom both in the pond and on the ground. She leads to a safe way.

Dear Francis,

What a lovely shot from this cute family however father seems to be at work, therefore, absent! :)

I like the way the ducklings the following their mother and the contrast you managed to achieve between the green waters and these animals, however, I am bit concerned over the harsh light due to which the birds tend to loose details of their tender feathers. If seen carefully, some parts of the birds are tend to OE.

Other than that, the scenario you have caught is pleasing to enjoy for ages.
A true treat to the eyes.

Kind regards,

PS: May I ask you, did you use flash in this shot?

They are so cute! Very nice capture of this family on an outing. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis,
The high contrast of light is looking interesting that depicts a bright day light. Nice panoramic frame. And deep green non transparent water seems to be a pond. Good catch my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.
