So sweet, David. Amazing you even saw them. Nicely done.

Awww, what a cutie. Until they invade your lawn. But their, uh, deposits, aren’t the level of toxic waste like the otters. Oy. That stuff should be weaponized. Anyway, I like the peeking through the grass aspect, but the grass is overwhelming to the little one. Maybe reduce some saturation and/or luminosity in the greens. Just a thought.

I love how the grass is framing the gosling. Beautiful capture!

They are great subjects to photograph the light is great here BUT I have to agree with Kristen about the grasses. I am also missing eye contact but that’s me :roll_eyes:

David, this is amazingly heart warming, with a fine glow around the gosling’s head and back. That leaf across it’s head adds well to the sense of hiding.
