Thank you, David, Art and Carla. I would have liked to move those pinecones, but it would have probably felt like a violent act to that tiny little thing. Also, mom was close and I didn't want to alarm her so kept my distance with a telephoto lens. Such is the challenge of capturing baby ducks.

Nice capture of a cute, adventurous duckling, Susan. The lighting and soft background really make it stand out. Good choice on the aperture and excellent focus.
