[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was an amazing site to come across this young gator with her new hatchlings. Have seen her by the shore for months now, understand she had been guarding her nest. Today I get to greet her new ones and her clan, her "pod". Will upload in the workshop another baby found earlier on a branch nearby sunning himself! Counted seven, wonder how many will be there the end of the week. Reading the "cow" mom, will stay around up to two years to ward off any predators.

Composición extrema, con un formato "banner" audaz, minimalista y con un impactante relato.
Esta obra es resultado de ese tipo de búsqueda estética que siempre me atrajo. La búsqueda del estilo, la cacería de la presentación que más enfatice lo retratado, no temiendo a salir de lo convencional. Felicitaciones, Brenda!!!

Love it... just wish it did not come out so squished looking.

All babies look so innocent and vulnerable, as I see the baby Gator in your workshop, Brenda.
The scale provided by mother Gator's head suggests how small the baby is. Wish the picture were a bit bigger though!
The expressions on the faces of the two clearly show the bonding between them.

Hello Brenda,
What a touching moment you have photographed. There is nothing more precious then the bond between a mother and her babies. I love the way the baby seems to be resting it's head on it's mothers snout. Great capture!!
PS. The WS photo is very cute also!
