I think you got some great visuals of "wildlife" in this one. Like many others I liked what you did with the dragonfly. And showing the nutria "family" gave us a look at what a lot of folks might not get to see.

Lorinda: Nutria are rodents, some consider them a pest, one of our lakes here got so over run with them it was a mess. But a few at a time are kinda cute.

The bluring transition worked well, I don't think I have seen anyone else use that technik in this challenge. A great assortment of wild life. Terrific.

Hi Victor.

Though I feel there is a lack of a story here I must say you've got a hole lot of great shots here. I envy you your dragonfly shot and the water rats are very cute.
Perhaps you should do a VO and make a little story out of it?
The music was a bit too fast for me, a more quiet tune would have been better, but thats only my personal taste. No offend. I must you are one lucky guy to have this park in your neighbourhood.

Wish you all the best.

Very nice Victor, I can see that there is much diversity in this small area.

I think you did a great job of illustrating that.

Hi Victor,

If this is your backup place, then I'd love to have it as my first choice! So many different wild animals in a park. That is amazing!
As others also have commented, I felt a story was missing.
I like the music you used.
Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to UC X.
