Mallard and Ducklings (Two Photographs)

Mallard and its Chicks To view more of my photography please click on

When ducks are very young they tend to be herded or shy away from humans. This log appears to have been sufficiently far enough away for comfort. As we watched, the ducklings fell asleep, woke up and moved about while the mother kept a wary eye out and not just on the photographer. I think in the second photo she is teaching them to stand on one leg.

  2. That’s not a mallard Victor–not 100% sure ,given that it’s a rear view, but I’m pretty sure it’s a wood duck.

  4. We have wood ducks on our pond in the winter and I’ve only once seen the ducklings. Love these shots.
