Gravity Doesn't Work on Baby Ducks
The very first day at camp we were met by this mother Black Duck and eight ducklings. The second day she lost one, but by the end of the week she still had seven, which is quite an accomplishment with all the pike, pickerel and bass in the lake, plus many hunters on shore and wing. I got a kick out of watching how the little ones skipped over the surface of the water as if they weighed nothing at all.
