Hi there - nice picture (and thinks for visiting / linking to WBW)Its interesting how the ducking beaks seem a "normal" size - I wonder when they get their shovel? Cheers - Stewart M
...that's an interesting question now that you bring it up.

Vibrant colors...nice photo.Joyce M
Such a lovely and sweet capture of this little family, Anni--in easier times for them, I'm sure. Don't know much about wildlife--will they migrate early searching for water and food?
around here they're quite a year 'round resident, tho lately, I've not seen too many 'cause of the drought.
Gorgeous!I haven't a clue what you did in the post-processing, but whatever it is, it's a unique look that I like.
Wow... Awesome shot!HugsDropped by Water World Wednesday!
