From a distance, I saw this mother duck had some young ducklings playing around her, but by the time I came close enough to photograph, they had all disappeared under her wings… I came as close as i could without disturbing her too much, set up my tripod and tele lens, and waited….
a looong time… :) . This one is Duckling 2 :)
In the end I only got to see and photograph two of them. After my walk, on my way back I passed there again. Now again the ducklings were playing all around her. But because of the scarce light, I didn’t succeed in making any good pics any more, but I counted them… there were at least 13 !!
Photograph made with Pentax K10D camera and Tamron 70-300mm Tele-macro1:2 lens.
