A Nat Geo moment here Ellen. What a tender moment at the most perfect of timing. One does not get a chance at this kind of picture that often, if ever and you have the talent to bring it to life for us. The little ones so cute, protected by moms wing. Exceptional and beautiful work. Annie and I hope you have a wonderful day. #11302378
