Going It Alone

By lifesnapper
Hi all, and thank you all for your kind comments and votes on my 'Littler Princess' very much appreciated.
Tonight though, a little bit of nature for a change. Spotted this little character having a wash and splash about all on it's own down by the Water's edge, with not a Brother Sister or Mother in sight. Just had to take a picture. Smile

All the best to all,

John Smile

All alone in the big wide world, the use of space gives you a real sense of scale and highlights just how small and vulnearable this little one is

Probably run away from home John.
He will be back when he discovers he is better off back with Mum and Dad !!
Good shot.

It's adorable! I too have been out photographing birds - saw some coot babies one day. This certainly is the time of year to see these little babes.
