A lovely capture of this sweet interaction, Robert. Mother looks a little weary, not surprising if she's got four youngsters to care for. A fine behaviour illustration and beautifully timed to isolate this moment. Well done!

Such a sweet interaction-love the look on mother's face, and the placement of the two. Truly a tender moment. Beautifully done.
