Mallard chicks in November

November 25 2014

Dear reader!

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!

Best regards
