They were about 10 metres away. I took a number of shots, see my previous upload as an example, and then all the planets aligned as the mother came into the scene, sat down and looked at me. The moment lasted a few seconds and then they all walked off. I knew that really, the previous 15 shots were 'nothing'; this was the shot that eclipsed all the others.
