Mallards

I haven’t spent enough time at Lake Kegonsa to know the story behind these four ducks.

I can guess they are a mother with three surviving ducklings.

Two of the ducklings dove into the surf – presumably to feed; while the large female to the left stayed onshore and fed.  The fourth, rather stalwart looking duckling, just stood onshore.

Occasionally, she put her head up to check on me as I inched in closer.

When I felt I had gotten close enough, I took a few final shots and then walked away.
