Default mother and child

went out this afternoon to look for green herons, didn't find any, but did find a pied-billed grebe with a chick in the pond... only one chick, which leads me to believe the others have fallen victim to predators - the nest is quite out in the open, and easily accessible to hawks, herons, and whatever else eats baby grebes... hope this last one makes it!! all with 7DII and Tamron 150-600 @ 600mm, various settings...

Cute mom and baby pictures. I really like the look of the last picture where the little one was crying out for mommy.

thanks, WCKSer! i think it was just yawning, but it sure looks like it was yelling, "mom! he's pointing that thing at me again!"
