Thanks Doro. :-) Sweet? No, those goslings from the other picture look vicious (and they are Ė or at least their parents are)! But I do have some very cute ducklings Iíll post later. Thatís a promise (or a threat if you prefer). :-D 1/8? Well, I figured out this is ca 1/8 of a goose (if you measure the height).

Smile - I like the simple composition and the use of the semi-solid color background.

In retrospective ...

this is the strongest one of your series, Caroline, and IMHO the best.

Kind Regards,

This is well cropped in camera if this is the original crop. Three ducks (or whatever) fit horizontally with the spacing that is left from the left side of the image in between. The plane is also split in to parts by the duck taking up half the height of the picture.

All the nice color and so on, I still think this image, which I enjoy, is even more enjoyable for the photographer that took it. I suspect the memory of capturing the shot is worth more than the actual shot ? Or ???

Thanks a lot for your comments Lorri, Frank, Horst and Johan. :-)

Johan: Yes, this is uncropped. The picture makes me smile and I have tested it on a few others too. People seem to instantly start smiling and/or giggel when they see it.

It was more fun shooting most of the other pictures I shot this day. It's from Gressholmen (an island in the Oslo fjord). Spent a whole day there looking at birds and rabbits. Most of the time sitting quietly on a stone to make them get used to me and don't pay too much attention to me. I succeeded with the wild rabbits. :-) A couple of them were very brave and curious. After almost two hours they came out from the woods and sat beside my camera back pack. That was a nice experience. :-)
