[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Mallard mom and her young were hiding in the grass along the side the pond bank. I am not sure what they were hiding from, but in just a few seconds they took off across the pond to a more secluded place. I am happy to report that everyone made it safely to the other side.

Enjoy - Bob

Hello Bob! Very funny family snapshot. Good capture and frame. Perfect sharpness. Good luck!

Hi Bob,

Surprisingly sharp considering the aperture setting that was used. This family was well seen and it is always rewarding to sit and watch nature doing its thing.

Hi Bob
I love this little family group and to see them hiding in these walls of rushes is quite funny. It makes me smile looking at them.
Thank oyu for sharing
