please mama?


'please, mama? can i? huh?' 


we went back, to the lake, with larger lenses and big hopes of capturing the tern again. well, that was not to be (this time!), but we saw other amazing things. like baby birds, tiny swallows, sparrows, wrens and ducklings! this photo is over cropped, but i really wanted to share just the teeny baby duckling and it's mama, while they stood together on this submerged log. right outside the image is another adult mallard, and the ducklings two siblings, paddling furiously away. this wee one seemed to be asking (a perfect caption left on instagram, thank you sonja) could he go too?  :)

  5. Lori, what a very special moment you've caught there. Hoping Mama said, "Yes, but don't go too far."

    1. hi penny, we went back again with a fixed 300 and 600. both with doublers and the 600 has a special tripod to support the lens. these lenses are very heavy and we don't take them out every time.
