Congratulations and thanks for share it with us.

This is a very cute capture of this little one. I like those details, exposure and colors in a good composition. I wonder why they always look like they are smiling or almost :) They must be happy birds. Thanks,

Nice...Love the smooth water which contrasts well with the sharp chick. Photographed lots of the adults but never seen a chick...nice. Best, Brat.
Nature is ahead with 3 – 4 weeks in UK compared with Canada.
In my local Park there are a Canada Goose on nest for the last 6-7 days. I’m worry about it: is 3 ft from the trail.
Your picture is very good and interesting (as usual) and is of rare bird too.

il est tres mignon et la netteté est tres bonne,il n'y a que le refet sur l'eau qui ne me semble pas tres naturel.

That is beautiful. I love the halo of feathers around the head, stunning reflection and great light. Nicely sharp, great POV and just very cute!
I like this, the lighting is good, bringing the detail out whilst adding that catchlight in the eye. The ripples also add to this...
This is a chick I have not seen before. Bags of definition, sharpness good, over use of burn tool, with too small a brush size, on chest spoils it somewhat. Use 6 or 7% on Highlights and a brush size about 250. Stop when the burned out bit has just gone.

I can see how proud he is, probably on his first swim ever..!
A well composed image with good details, the fluffy plumage comes out very well!
