Excellent crop Sylvia and I like the water movement giving it a purpose as she turns. Catchlights are spot on. She certainly has her Mothers eye Smile
Superb natural history image

Delightful image Sylvia which really shows the bond between the mother and young. Your timing is perfect to catch the movement of the flipper and water splash.

A wonderful capture of the two. I like how her flipper is up, like she is going to push her baby along...........Sandy
