Mallard and Ducklings (Two Photographs)

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.
