I took these yesterday afternoon:
The adults hissed at me at first, but I kept talking to them as I raised the camera and they let me get really close to their babies. These cuties in the top photos were less than two feet away from my toes.
You may remember me mentioning a little while ago two ducklings that seemed to be without parents, and the following day we only saw one?
We think this is the surviving one as it is bigger than the rest and fending for itself.
Isn’t she beautiful?
