Amazing scene and brilliant quality of the shot. All is superb. Mom with its kid are simply charming and reflected terrifically. I like wonderful sharpness and details of the grass. It is the best FG for this cute pair. I also like how well water surface is looked. Lights I spot on and colours are sweet. Bravo,. Well done. My compliments.

An absolute delightful image, not only for the cuteness factor but also for the brilliant details captured on the plumage of the adult mallard. The colours captured and portrayed are rich and warm and looking at this image fills me with happiness. The single flower in the foreground adds extra sparkle to this already special image.
Although the little one is still just fluff, the big black eye is very noticeable. Thanks for sharing these cute waterbirds.

Ah, ces jolis petits canards, ils étaient si mignons ! Tu as très bien réussi à les capturer, avec d'excellents détails, des couleurs très douces, une jolie composition. C'est vraiment très réussi. Et en plus la maman canard me rappelle ma Flora ! :-) Félicitations !

this is a lovely and motherly shot. The ducks are very sharply taken with well used of light. The patterns on the feathers indeed very pretty. The hairs on the duckling too is very sharp and the contrast is well seen.
What a cute guy, following the mum in an elegant pose. You also have included the daisy, it enhance the shot and make the whole capture very meaningful.
Beautifully composed in brilliant environment.
Thanks and best regards,
This picture is almost one year old, Jacqueline. Apparently, you had started doing nature photography much earlier than you joined TN.
I can see that you have a good knack for perspective -- you have got three subjects within the frame. Though your focal point is the frontal view of the mom Duck, you have got the chick too in sharp focus and that little white and yellow daisy just about stays within the frame. I know you wouldn't crop it off :).
I also like the two distinct colours of the foreground and the background.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful picture and best regards.

Une image charmante et printanière qui fait plaisir à voir! Il est vrai que les petits poussins n'ont pas de peine à conquérir le coeur des gens. Jolie aussi la petite pâquerette au premier plan.
Une belle journée

A delightful capture from last spring taken of a mother Mallard with her duckling. I like the POV, crouching pose of the duckling and the composition in the grass by the water is very pleasing.
A fine cute shot and thanks for sharing it.

C'est vraiment trop mignon, Jacqueline, quelle superbe prise de vue, directement de front pour la cane avec le petit caneton tout à côté! De plus, la marguerite juste devant la cane, c'est comme la cerise sur le sundae. Superbe, merci beaucoup!

Merci pour tes mots encourageants sur ma dernière photo...
Tu nous présentes une photo très sympathique et agréable à voir. Les deux, le canard adulte et son petit, sont si mignons. C'est toujours touchant de voir une famille d'animaux. En plus, la qualité de ton image les mets bien en valeur: la netteté est superbe, et la pâquerette à l'avant-plan nous introduit très bien dans l'image.

We seldom see Mallards here in Borneo although many years ago as a boy migratory birds were very common; how I wish those days we had digital cameras!
I like the depth of this shot, giving both of them a good sharpness and especially showing different action. The mother always casting a watchful eye, as seen here. If the mother is placed slightly off center, the duckling may get more prominence?
I can see you are doing well here as we started just days apart. As Jusni would have attested, I have no macro lens yet.
Keep post your good work.

Beautiful shot of mother and son. :) Well composed, nice and sharp image which tells us a whole story about the little duck, who only has one thought: following mum anywhere.
Tfs and congrats, best regards, László

Firstly, thanks for visiting my flying Impalas.
I've gone back into your portfolio and I really like this shot. The waggling mother
Mallard, the cute little duckling, and the tiny flower in the foreground are all items
that gave the shot a lovely interest. The DOF was sufficient to capture good details
on both birds and the colours are natural.
Well done and TFS.

They are so cute and funny, when they instinctively follow mama..!
The fine light renders great colours, and both birds are captured with great details...
The image has a lovely spring feeling, you even managed to include a daisy..!
