Baby Steps

A duckling waddles along Lake Murray, San Diego CA in soft evening light. Laid down in the sand on the shoreline for this one, had to give the gear a thorough clean out afterward

This is quite an outstanding photo. The beautiful smooth background and colours really contrast with that tack-sharp face. Outstanding, and one of the best ones I have seen in this forum.

Nice low angle shooting.  They are cute at that age.

Beautiful photo... as good as it gets.

Well worth the effort of the "belly flop".

I like to tell folks that getting down low for a photo is no trouble at all but,  at my age,  getting back up is!! 😉

Regards,
