    Hi, good to have a new photographer here!

    Well I dont know your setup but it looks like your shooting film (I think) but if you are you probably have a SLR that can zoom in and out. Well if you could I would have soomed out to capture the whole scene. It would be good but it makes me look to the sides to find more.

    Im not sure how the pond is shaped but if its not too big you could stand to the right to get a angle on the fence ( I think thats your subject).

    One more thing. if its a SLR you can change the f/stop to a higher number and the shutter to a slower speed. this will make more of the wildlife in focus, but you might have to rest the camera on something like a tripod so there isn't any blur.

    Hope this helps!
