The humor this photograph conveys is hilarious. However, to achieve this composition, the main ingredient for me was patience. I had to wait for both ducks to choreograph their movements in a synchronized way. It actually was fun to stop and “be present” with each moment and it was a reminder to use this lesson in my life.
Patience with photography can often provide some humorous benefits. I hope these make you smile. I love the concentric circles with the ducks. Also, I have never seen marmots playing together. Before this tender pose, they were running and chasing each other and doing summersaults in the tundra. Then, suddenly, they stopped and appreciated each other and the moment.
