It’s so amazing to watch the loving, nurturing and the kind of relationships between parents and the young ones in the animal world, people could learn a lot from the animals.

The American Coot (Fulica americana) is a bird of the family Rallidae, inhabiting wetlands and open water bodies. Measuring 34–43 cm (13–17 in) in length and 58–71 cm (23–28 in) across the wings, adults have a short thick white bill and white frontal shield, which usually has a reddish-brown spot near the top of the bill between the eyes. Body mass in females ranges from 427 to 628 g (0.94 to 1.38 lb) and in males from 576 to 848 g (1.27 to 1.87 lb). (From Wikipedia)

Hi Eleu,
A nice relation between this mother duck with its young one!
Perfect focusing and such good light management. I like the rippled water creating such beautiful patterns.
Well done,

Fantastic scene, the relationship of the parent bird and the young chic is well shown, well seen

Hi Eleu, I love the scene of mother duck apparently teaching the duckling the rules of life - what better relationship as that could there be .....
a very good snapshot - nice light and the ripples in the water are enhancing the scene.
Thanks for sharing, kind regards - Monika

Light is bit harsh but overall I like the mood and feelings you have captured in this shot, Eleu

Good focus and nice clarity with well kept contrast in the picture.
The POV and DOF are well done, and colors are quite natural.

A good contribution to Friday's theme.

Have a nice weekend.


Sorry folks........ OE and blurred as I see it!! And the composition is not eye-catching with central subjects in a plain BG.
