Top Shot: One Big Happy Family | Photograph by Assaf Gavra (@assaf_gavra)
#YourShotPhotographer Assaf Gavra took the advantage of using a photography hide to capture this moment of a mallard family forming one perfect line. Hides are used by wildlife photographers to get close to their subjects without alerting the animals to their presence. This image, taken in Budapest, Hungary, was selected for the December 8, 2017 Daily Dozen by Your Shot producer Matt Adams (@themattadams).
