32. Big and Small

I watched this mama and baby for some time….this little boy is 6 months old and is already driving his mom nuts!  She kept trying to grab him and he kept dodging her…look at that face “Come and get me”….a typical toddler!  This was perhaps my favorite time of the day, I think I sat and watched these two for over an half hour!  Pure enjoyment!

  1. Great capture Tammy. Love the face on the little one. Fantastic depth and composition.

  2. This must have been fun just to watch the interaction! I love the picture and the thoughts that you can almost see go between them. Your clarity is amazing! Wonderful.

  3. A National Geographic candidate! That little guy is adorable.

  4. Tammy, this is National Geographic material! Absolutely a fantastic capture….

  5. Hi Tammy,
    I can just see that baby jumping around teasing mama to come and get him. Great shot! Love the jellyfish too. Very pretty colors! Have a great day!


  6. Are you sure she doesn’t have twin boys who play soccer and just got their licences? She has that look in her eyes. You know -there is a tether there and she has reached the end of it.

    • LOL that’s probably why I enjoyed these guys so much, it reminded me of ME!! She can’t handle the one, think if she had TWO 🙂

  7. What a wonderful capture! I love the expressions, the composition, their colors against the background. Terrific!

  8. I like the look on the mom’s face the best. She looks like she has really lost her patience. A wonderful shot. The details are fabulous.

  9. Tammy! It has all been said. Go do other things in my life, come back and I’m johnny come lately! lol

    Between the two of them, Mama shows her exasperation more than Jr shows his being feisty! Great capture! Just exactly what are these two creatures?

  10. That’s a definite “aawww!” It was worth watching, that’s for sure!

  11. Really great image Tammy..you can see the expression on their faces…great story.

  12. This is so fine! You really should see into cards or something at the zoo, your shots from there are outstanding.

  13. Oh, this made me laugh! I KNOW the way she’s feeling! This is a picture that just sums up the whole story.

  14. The expressions on their faces are priceless. Well worth the patience to capture this moment!

  15. Such a great shot! I love the interplay between the two of them, the framing is just perfect, and the fact that both sets of eyes are perfectly sharp but the background is soft makes this image a complete winner in my book.

  16. Charming shot of mommy and baby. I don’t know how you managed to choose just one!

  17. What a lovely portrait, Tammy! The detail and emotion of the shot are standouts for me. Great work.

  18. This is just wonderful, perfect for the theme for sure but sooooo precious. My favourite!!

  19. I agree with Judy and Julie, definitely Nat Geo material. Great shot!

  20. Awesome image and choice for your Feb. favorite Tammy!!!!

  21. That little guy is too cute! This is a great shot, and I love the looks captured on both their faces.
