Funny story: while the mother and the rest of her babies went for a swim, this little guy stayed behind with the father trying to get him to go in. The mother eventually joined in on this. Obviously, I couldn't capture the moment in still shots, but it was really entertaining to watch.
THEY GET BIG SO FAST
To compare, here's a new goose family.
Tried to get a comparison shot of both of the families.
Baby duck in the transitioning stage to adulthood. It was weird, s/he just...
...waddled up right to me...
...and seemed to pose for the camera.
Then went off to join the rest of the family.
Couple more of those almost-no-longer-baby ducks waddled up to me. Camera started dicking around with me, hence the shaky shot.
Was able to get a better shot with the mom, though.
Mom of thirteen. THIRTEEN! (On Friday the Thirteenth, no less!)
The yellow one's my favorite.
Last good shot I could get of them before they swam away. Hoping I can catch them again before they start growing up.
