You know how every now and then you get a shot that just makes you giddy when you see it after you’ve uploaded it? Yeah, this was mine today. :) This little guy was just a couple of months old and he captured our hearts when I took my girls to feed the ducks today, they kept giving him all the food which he then had to wrestle away from his elders.
