A beautiful image with the precise focus at just the right plane. The other items in the picture add to its success, but the prime little fellows steal the show. Thanks for your comments on how the old wagon wheel was made.

Excellent image of new life in this place we usually don’t associate with life at all. Those goslings are so darn cute.
