End of November ... and a proud Mallard mother proudly presents her nine chicks on a small pond!
The cute chicks chased …
… enthralled a fly species, which flew directly above the water:
Only when they became a little bit tired, it was …
… possible to make a few pictures of the lively chicks:
Unbelievable only a few days of age and already self supporters:
Exhausted from the wild hunt after flies, the offspring headed for the beach, to …
… have a catnap:
"Nha!, I am awake again!"
Hopefully the enemies of the foodchain are cooperative with the nice extended family!
