Ducklings ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Afloat

This mother Mallard with her brood are like feather bobbers, as they paddle through the marshes. What a joy it was to see them up close in nature.

P1030495She didn’t think much of me invading her territory, so she gathered her young ones close and paddled away from where I stood.

P1030497While keeping a sharp eye on me, she hustled her babes off to the other side of the marsh.

P1030499I count ten ducklings.  How many do you see?
