Very nice behavioral image. Good job on the mother duck with good eye contact. High points for cuteness factor. I do find the white curb behind the duck to be a little distracting and maybe you could try to darken it.

I love the pose of the mother duck, Eddie, and the ducklings are definitely cute. I agree with David on the curb. I’d also be tempted to dodge the ducklings a bit to balance the emphasis between them and the mother a bit more.

Great expression on Mom you caught here Eduard. And the babies are wishing they could hide even more, so overall a nice behavioral catch. Yeah, the white is a bit distracting but you’d probably have to get in the water to eliminate it, ha ha.
