Wow!  Such cool pictures!  I love the hungry baby birds, and the pond with the geese swimming on top of the fish!  We have something like that here and the ducks practically just walk on top of the fish to get the breadcrumbs that people throw! lol.

This is how my three children looked when they started eating from a spoon. I had three high chairs, three kids, one spoot.
