My heart goes out to you, my friend. I know what it's like to absolutely love something and feel absolutely helpless. My prayers are with you - and I love this photo as well!

Your English is just fine! I know just what you mean - photographing nature is a wonderful pick me up - better than a pill. And this family shot is just lovely. I think I counted ten ducklings! I love the swirls in the water and the mom's reflection.

My very best to you, a man who not only has a heart like all others, but wears it on his sleeve...your emotion is so important and so much a part of the peace and love in you..and well said through this image..to which I add it to the right theme!

Your words go straight to the heart, I sincerely hope all will be fine with Celtick in the coming days both now and after the surgery, all the best.
Cheers Rick :)

Hi Asbed, sorry to hear about your dog. This is an early shot of yours, and it's not the best you've done, but the pose is good. I could see how it would lift your spirits taking, and then later reviewing this shot. You had a good eye for composition even back then. I like the shot of the mother and the young ones in a line like this.

Lovely composition with great use of light and colour.
My best wishes for Celtic's recovery - I know I would be devastated if anything happened to Coco (my westie - who is currently ignoring me and sitting in the window, waiting for the postlady to arrive)!

Hi Asbed, another easily affected note and splendid capture of these cute duck family with nice details. Composition is also great my friend. TFS.

Bellissima nidiata, efficace POV dall'alto, che in questo caso favorisce un taglio compositivo con un'ampia ambientazione in acqua con riflessi e colori molto belli, buona nitidezza. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Nice to see one of your start out shots of the Mother Wood duck and her Ducklings, I started in a similar way with a low pixel camera and lots of Duck and Swan shots and its nice to look cabk to see how we all have come along.
I hope all will be well with Celtick and he comes through his surgery and makes a full recovery.

Time is limited at the moment but I could not pass without leaving a few words of appreciation for your posting. I can understand after reading your note why you gave this image the title "The image of my HEART". It is indeed a very peaceful and lovely image and looking at it, it has a calming effect to it. Very passionate and motherly scene of the mommy duck and her ducklings. Good presentation, greatly displayed. Your note was really touching and I am sure things will turn out fine with the surgery. Thanks for sharing.

Hang on in there my friend. Things will turn out good, just give it some time.
I really liked reading about your experience. I can appreciate where you are coming from as nature and nature photography always served as a huge stress reliever for me. Its awesome this has worked for you as well.
This picture really sums up what you've said. Its a great capture.

This would be perfect Mother's day card. Just lovely full of charm and in the most natural way. Very well capture and presented. Thanks for sharing and your nice comments. I've been busy and have not been active here.
Days have passed since you posted this photograph, and the story that you have accompanying is touching and heart warming.
I'm glad you decided to focus on something that could distract you from the worry that was weighing down your mind and i wonder what came of Celtic after the crucial day!
This is a fine image with a nice PoV and great mood - one that shows the sentiments of a relationship between living beings, here a mother who is moving with her little ones...Look around and there are so many of us caught in one relation or the other going through certain worrying times...yet most of us are lucky to have the Lord bringing us some distraction or the other to rise up again and get back to life...
Thank you for sharing this...pains shared are pains spared...Take care
