We love the composition and slight humor of the intimate moment captured in the first place image. Second place made us snicker and we like the repetition of the binoculars as well as the lone duck in the foreground that not one kid is looking at. Third place is a lovely feature in an locale that the photographer probably scoped out and waited patiently for the right co-subject to enter the frame and jaws.
