Eight Ducklings and Mom

This morning my neighbor called me to come outside and see a mother duck with eight ducklings in tow. Careful not to stress the mother, we kept our distance, but I took photos with a 400mm lens of the new family.

In the lake right in front of my home, mother duck leads her ducklings on a morning swim. She kept a watchful eye out for any predators.

Mother duck and eight ducklings swim the other way across the lake. The light is different as they paddle toward the sun.
