Voilà la Maman.... et si elle reste une beauté de la nature, elle m'inspire beaucoup moins.
Jolie photo cependant.

A very discrete presence as she hovers at the surface! I can only imagine what that open jaw would look like. I love her tail.

5 Dec 2018 5:58pm

@Steven: She was thrashing her tail about a couple of times.

A fine shot of a concerned mother. I’d have a close watch myself if near her.
