Wonderful shot of the Merganser and her brood, Paul. Nice light, good detail, and an excellent reflection.

Sweet as can be- one of my favorite ducks and her brood- beautifully done. I've seen as many as 25 ducklings with one parent- I think they "baby-sit" sometimes.

Thank You. A mother can pick up other broods.  I have witnessed and actually posted (here, in the past) a mother with over 40.
