Creative Photography #12

Even though as a CPJ my photo doesn't get voted on, I thought I'd share this photo that I caught in mid-July at the Westham Island Bird Sanctuary. Such a sweet picture! I sneaked up behind this family and got the photo right through the long grass. And they never moved a muscle. I did nothing to enhance the photo - it's exactly as taken. Click to enlarge and then check out the official Creative Photography site here to see participants' photos.

Aww, sweet shot! So satisfying when wildlife decides to actually cooperate once in a while, isn't it? (Smile)

How wonderful that they didn't move. I love how safe and content they look and I love how Mom appears to be watching all around her.

Great shot!!
