Our daughter snapped a couple of good pictures of the recent hatch of ducklings.
Here it looks as though the family just came out of the pond. Mama Duck is preening herself . . .
. . . and the ducklings are settling down on a patch of warm soil in the sunlight for a rest period.
Whenever possible, having animals (fur or fowl) raise their young in the natural way is a joy to see.
