[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, and now it is the turn
of this Mallard family with only 3
ducklings to swim in the reflections.

1/2000s, f/8.0, ISO1000,
50mm (35mm eq:75mm).

- Mallard Duck
- Canard Colvert
- Anas platyrhynchos

from Hinterland Who's Who website

As soon as the ducklings are dry,
the female leads them to the nearest water.
This may be a long and hazardous journey.
Although the female may have nested near
a pothole or slough full of spring meltwater,
much of this water may have evaporated, leaving
nothing but drying mud. On overland trips,
straggling ducklings may get lost in the
grass or be picked up by predators.
