A little duckling hatching out of it’s egg :)

I was lucky to be able to photograph this little guy – it was quite warm so the mother duck was off the nest which meant I was able to watch some of the eggs hatch.

Creative, curious country chick, with a few horses, lazy dog and insane cat in tow! Living the dream in rural Australia, my photos focus on the outback, horses, and the rural way of life… oh and a few pretty flowers along the way!

    Amazing! such an intense, clean photo. What a miracle to see this. Love it.

  • Thank you Lynnie :) I must admit myself that I’m a little surprised how tidy it came out in a dusty hen house! It’s right up there with one of my favourite moments :)
