Momma Mallard.

Momma Mallard.

I doubt this will be the only mother duck picture posted today; Mallards are so helpful, having broods in early May.

Nevertheless, Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, and to all ducklings too.

Mother of 12 (one rebel refused to stay in the frame).

We had a momma and baby ducks in our yard last week, but I didn't get any pictures! Too busy trying to shoo them away from the dogs!

Oh my lord, I can barely keep track of one crazy duckling, I can't imagine the patience and vigilance it takes to count 12 all the time! Especially with one wily one always trying to get away. Mama ducks are my heroes!
