Top Shot: Getting Your Early Morning Ducks in a Row | Photograph by Aleš K. (@dreamypixels)
A mother duck swims with her ducklings during an early morning at Lake Bled, Slovenia. Your Shot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee) writes, “I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Don Cayo who commented, ‘Wonderful light and colour. Your reward for getting up early.’ This is so beautiful Aleš. I see a lot of photos of Lake Bled, so I like the inclusion of these ducks swimming by — this extra visual layer is fantastic. I like how quiet this moment feels. What a gorgeous way to start the day. Well done.” This photo was selected for July 19, 2018 Daily Dozen.
