Hatched

Hatched

There’s a park nearby that I just discovered where there’s a small man made pond inhabited by many varieties of waterfowl that linger on its banks. The birds are so tame from visitor feedings that the mother of these hatchlings hardly batted an eye as I came inches from her babies. I’ve never been this close to ducklings before.
