|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|When I passed one of the six lakes on Tauplitz Alm, a group of young ducks were hiding in the grass and compressing while resting. Their mother moved on the lake not far away.|
Mallards are wide spread around the world. They live in Europe, Asia and North America and are found in wetland habitats.
Males are, as within the birds is common, more colorful, with bright green head and bigger than females, juveniles are similar to females.
There are up to 13 eggs in the nest and it takes almost a month before the younsters have been hatched.
Scientific name: Anas platyrhynchos
Common name: Mallard

Lovely image - they have beautiful markings on their faces!
A warm welcome to TN, Mitja. : )
What a cute little group of ducklings.
It is hard to create a good composition with a collection of things or animals, but I have to say you succeeded quite well.
Maybe a bit more contrast and a tad of sharpening would bring out the details even more. I did a quick workshop for you. Hope you don't mind.
Thank you for sharing.
