What a beautiful, graceful pose on Momma Bird - you captured her at the perfect moment, Rona. Her protective wing outstretched over her brood (with them obligingly looking up at her :), well, heartwarming is the word that come to mind...perfect for Mother's Day! A truly stunning shot and one I hope to see in the Winner's Circle next month. #10138921
