Oh, they are so cute! What a great series of pics of these little fluff balls. I saw a pair of mallards in a drainage ditch this morning but too far away for a close up. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Oh my goodness...this series is heart melting sweet Brian! All of them are exceptional, but that last one with the mama talking and the two little ones...one peeking over the driftwood...outstanding!!!

They are splendid - but give what generally happens to most of these little fluff balls, I hope the mother can't count!
