First Ducklings of 2011

These were the first mallard ducklings we'd seen this year, though I've heard reports of others seeing some a week or so ago. There was a group of two in one pond (of which you only see one, with its mother, below) and a group of eight in the adjacent pond (bottom photo). It's amazing to see how independently they explore and how very quickly they swim back to find mama.
