  1. 👌👌👌📷🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🤗 beautiful 🌹 I wish You a beautiful Sunday dear Donna ☀️📷🤗

    • Thank you, Simon! Those geese, lol. I actually have a couple other shots without the geese in them, but I succeeded the best with this shot for sharpness with Momma. She was just too pretty and proud in this one. 😊

  2. Even when is late on Sunday: Happy Mother’s Day, my friend. I hope that you enjoyed your day with your family. 🙂

  3. How sweet! She does look so proud, and my respect for her, to take care of some many young ones. Wishing you and all your dear ones a good week ahead 🙂

  4. Wow, great to see all these wood duck ducklings, Donna. Adorable photo for Mother’s Day. I like, too, how the C. geese are watching them parade through. Happy belated Mother’s Day.

    • Thank you, Jet! Such a sweet shot, I was so excited in seeing them, I’ve always wanted some baby Wood Duck ducklings for my files. Got some more today! I got to watch nine jump out of a nest box and plop into the water below. It was a priceless moment for me. 😊

      • I saw wood ducklings jumping out of the box once in real life and a few times on TV and OMG Donna! So adorable! I’m thrilled you saw nine of them just yesterday. I’m smiling so big right now!

  5. Great shot Donna, love it. That’s a lot of little ones to keep track of. I will echo the other comments, the expression on those geese’ face, amazing.
