This is such an adorable photo, those little chicks are super cute. I love how you have managed to photo the whole family together x #mysundayphoto
At first we thought the ducklings must be from several parents until we read up on how large a clutch wood ducks have.
Awwww - adorable. Lovely that we can see spring photos on #MySundayPhoto and you can't beat a family of ducklings :)
I've got more ducklings coming too ;o) they are so hard to capture!
Oooh - looking forward to seeing these on later #AnimalTales if you can get pictures!
You mean when they've grown up a bit? That would be lovely!
Such lovely photos, everyone is beautiful
I bet you get to see cute chicks on the farm all the time. Are any of them ducklings?
omg so cute. all those cute ducklings. lovely shots.
We couldn't believe how many ducklings there were!
Oh how sweet, they look so soft and fluffy Thank you for linking up
They are like little balls of fluff aren't they?
so cute! :)
Aren't they just!
Oh wow, I love all of these photos. What a beautiful brood :)
They were really shy and the parents took the chicks away from the nasty photographer. I wish they had stayed but I guess that's why they still had so many chicks!
15 chicks??? Wow!! I didn't know they had such huge broods! Great pix!
Usually broods are a bit smaller, I guess these two were pretty keen to get their family growing.
Precious!I hope you'll come link up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/09/shake-those-tail-feathers.html
These are really adorable.
Ducklings are always cute but I do think that Wood Duck ducklings are cuter =)
Hi Stella, what lovely photos! Mother duck certainly has her wings full with a brood that size. Whenever I see fluffy chicks I get the urge to pick them up and squeeze them (I do resist though!).xx
Maybe she copes with such a large brood because both parents share the raising? I know just what you mean about wanting to squish and snuggle them.
Love those pictures- I really never knew they would have so many! We always see little ones when we are fishing but only about 5 or 6 with the parents :)
Yes, 5-6 is more usual for ducks, Wood Ducks are different though and have bigger broods.
what glorious slender necks they have
They are often mistaken for geese for that very reason.
Oh my! They are so many. Love how they stay together on land and water.
Such diligent parents. They really do keep their young right at hand.
