The male keeps busy feeding both the female and, most importantly, the new baby chick. It is interesting to watch.. when he has given either the female or the baby chick their food, he swoops away, head bowed down parallel to the water and circles around. A ritual possibly.. and beautiful to watch.

    Ducks are the most family oriented animals there are I think. Them and penguins. A precious capture.

    Perfect! This is really stunning! I think it is remarkable how these creatures of nature are so responsible in feeding their young ...It is heart warming.
