Some nice young coots, but the parents are very aggressive around this time. Even ducks don't like that.

Running out of time :( Added a rainy view, but missing the splashes in the water here...

Btw. Rain stopped as soon as this challenge was announced, so let's hope for more rainy challenges :)

Except for the rainy effect it's just basic editing

Is it really the rain, or is it a filter?

yeah... with that much "rain" i'd expect to see more ripples in the water...

Not fond of the border, but the image itself is very good. Love the highlights on the young birds' bills, and the mom in the background really helps tell the story.
