Mother Mallard And Her Children
( with apologies to Bertolt Brecht )
Went to see if there was any activity on the Pool this morning. It was pretty quiet, there were lots of Canada Geese lounging around on the grass and on the viewing platfrom, but not much on the water. I took a shot of a Tufted Duck, but missed the baby as it kept diving under the water. I decided that would be my blip, when round the corner appeared this Mallard with seven ducklings. One was way behind the others so I was not able to get all of them in frame. So here are Mum and six babies. The Tufted Duck is the extra.
Thanks to Cailleach for hosting Wild Wednesday.
