CommentAlthough the lighting is a bit harsh, I entered this because I think the story outweighs the light.
I like the two parents being present, and there is more than one activity going on - feeding the chicks, looking for food and gathering/protecting the chicks.
I also really like the view of the coots foot under the water.
