Nice capture, Vicki. They are so adorable. #7173897

Vicki L. Filippin February 17, 2009

Thank you, Kay & Bob...this was as crop. I'd toyed with taking Momma out of the shot and just leave the babies, but they looked too lonely!

Mitch Spence level-classic February 17, 2009

I love the framing you chose in camera, Vicki. Mom is very much there, but it leaves the emphasis on the little ones. Nice! #7175594

Vicki L. Filippin February 17, 2009

Thank you, Mitch. I wasn't sure if this kind of comp would be acceptable or not. I appreciate the positive feedback on it. #7175894

I bet it sees finalist!!!

Count yourself one of the lucky I would be exaggerating if I said I comment on 3 images a week... This is special!! #7290648

Vicki L. Filippin March 16, 2009

Thank you, Kara...I don't take your comment lightly at ALL..I'm about the same as you as far as comments. I feel terrible about it, but just can't seem to find the time I used to.
Here's hoping! I'm shooting for that 2nd place in a BIG way...haven't been able to get over that finalist hump since Feb. o8! #7290811
