Are these all from one family??? If so, what a BIG one! Never seen that many. Cool capture Rita. #1377870

Great photo Rita... Your work in Topaz really brings a nice feel to the image. The tone of the photo has a richness to it. #9410365

Laura Greene 5/18/2011 12:01:54 PM

Sherran asked what I was going there another set of parents cropped out on the other side? Wow, no wonder they look so proud! It's a wonderful catch and I enjoy your dd technique. #9410721

JudyAnn Rector level-classic 5/18/2011 12:41:08 PM

Spectacular image, Rita! #9410754

Rita Hill level-classic 5/18/2011 1:07:01 PM

To answer Sherran and Laura's question: Yes, there were more adult geese in front of the babies, I zoomed in to capture the little guys. #9410793

Irene Colling level-classic 5/18/2011 1:43:25 PM

Excellent composition Rita. Your upper left placement of the adult geese is nicely balanced by the goselings on the right. The diagonal of water in the background creates an extra dynamic for an outstanding image. #9410862

Well you made me wonder also on the parentage. This is what you babies day out. Quite a few proud parents here. Great find. Not every day you see this many babies all at once. #9411136

Karen Kessler level-classic 5/20/2011 12:23:26 PM

What a large brood they have! :) Cute photo of them waddling along! #9417374
