Hello Jacek,

Those chicks appear to be giving Mum a lot of problems by the state of her hair!

A shot full of interest.
The composition is good and the rising of the waves gives a feeling of movement.
Mum's pose (and hairstyle) is very endearing and amusing.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Oooh, beautiful, perfectly shot, great light and so touching and cute! The pov is superb, low and between waves,we see the wet head of the mother with those little chicks on her back. I love your picture, thank you for posting, it is superb!

O0la Jacek
Bela foto destas aves, sua pelagem com os raios solares deu um efeito muito bom, a nitidez esta otima e a focalizaçăo tambem.

Hello Jacek,
Very effective low point of view...
Extraordinary haircut:-)
Well done
