Ducklings (Two Photographs)

I selected these two photographs to publish because they showed the long flotillas of the ducking nursery. I suspect these ducklings are not all from the same family; last year we saw female wood ducks taking turns minding the ducklings.  Given the nature of the files these are pretty much out of camera (cropping, exposure adjustments and minor sharpening only). Noise reduction did not work as it smoothed out everything and my attempts at enhancing details just encouraged shiny highlights.

  3. What a line-up! Interesting about whose babies are whose….I often wonder if our BBW duck families do this. Sometimes, a family goes from 16 new ducklings down to 4 within a couple of weeks, sadly ;(. Other times, we see 15-16 babies for a long time, and wonder if they are all from one set of parents.
