Yves Langlois

This time of the year sure is the best to photograph parenthood in the bird world. And your shot do it so well here. Between you and me. I love those tree loaded with moss. Always a beautyful addon to wildlife photo.

Debra Plett

Yes I too love all the texture and character that these old mossy trees add to an image. The outdoors is filled with the sound of birds right now. Very wonderful moment to just stand and listen. Thanks for the feedback Yves.

Heather Mellon

A delightful candid capture. They stand out especially well here framed by the textures and complementary tones of the balsam branches against the darker background trees. I love the mood of the moment you caught here. Very nicely done Debra.

The birds sure were having fun and giving mom a run for her money. Thank you Heather.

Clifford Dupuis

what a nice shot. It is always great to experience their behaviours and teachings.

Debra Plett

I agree Clifford, Nature is so calming and intriguing to watch. Thank you.

This Canada Jay was busy teaching the little ones all about life. They were flying in and out of the balsam trees, trying to extract seeds from last years dried clematis flowers and chasing each other.
