Summering in the Wildlands

Wildlife in the Wildlands! This summer a mother duck built her nest in the tall grass of the Wildlands. She hatched seven eggs whose chicks quickly grew into a raft of ducklings. I happened upon them swimming with mama on a summer’s day. I had to zoom so as not to scare them. A mother duck is protective of her brood! They have since moved on to a bigger and better pond. We’ll miss them!
