This is a glorious image of this little duckling. The detail is lovely and you captured the image at a perfect moment with its little tongue out. Sweet.

Hi Staale,

That is precious! I love the little tongue! Lovely colors and details. He is a cutie pie.


bonjour staale
un beau portrait,c'est bien l'habitude des petits de tirer la langue.
bonne netteté et belles couleurs.

Hi Staale,
This is the first time I see a duck stick out its tongue, worth to say really looks like human :), nice POV with soft yellow color, the side light give a relief and detail of its head, really love the detail and its eye sight, TFS

nice catch.

Hi Staale.
Your sweet shot of this cute baby is very nice and likable to me. You have create a true portrait work. I like pictured scene and moment so much. Light, shadows, details and colours are excellent. May be DOF is shallow a little bit (f/2.8) but at your case it is not important. Perfect done and TFS.


LOL :)
What a great job here. Can't catch many images with this going on, I love it. Looks as though your subject has quite the humor.
Nice job,

Hi Staale, this is a lovely shot of this sweet little Gosling. I love the way his little tongue is peeping out of his beak. The close up is very well focused and the light is perfect. All very sharp with catchlight on the eye. A wonderful composition. I hope you watch them grow up and post you shots here!
Well done
