A daddy carries his child on his back.
The child's eyes look in amazement and discover
nature's wonders : the conversation between Birch and Cattail,
the wiggling eel, the great heron chasing a field mouse...
A day in the life of a father and his child.
A day out in nature, by a river.
All in all, a day filled with love !
