    Too cute, Dan. This relatively small species is cute enough as adults, but the chicks take top billing. Wonderful interaction between chick and parent. Love the defused light and subtle colors. Very nice details.

    This is really nice Dan.
    Love the interaction and the fact that both birds are so nice and sharp.
    IQ and feather detail are excellent. Perfect HA.
    In a perfect world the reflections would be a bit nicer but that is a very small nit.
    Would love this one for my files,
    Gail

    Love the image, a tender moment. I like everything about the image. Thank you for sharing, Dan.

    Sweet shot. Wonderful smooth light with just enough shadow to bring out details.
    Love the interaction.

    Killer image, very touching behavioral interaction. Details and exposure are money, and the smooth green is really pretty. A very strong frame.

    Very nice all around. Pose on both parent and chick are right on. Focus is perfect as well. Love the green water.
