Mama wood duck (Aix spponsa) and 5 kids
Wood ducks have been eluding me this year. Until this week, that is, when a female and her young family swam into range of my camera's lens. I still haven't seen a male this year but by now he has most likely moulted into his less fancy feathers. Maybe next spring I'll find one in his breeding garb.
