For a few weeks, the waters of Utterslev Mose have been teeming with younglings. The first to arrive were the Greylag goslings (Anser anser), followed by the Mallard ducklings (Anas platyrhynchos).
When I look at these cute faces, I can’t help but think it’s a good fit for this week’s photo challenge, Jubilant.
While the geese can be quite aggressive when one gets too close to their babies, Mallards tend to prefer the flight. It’s really funny to see the mom towing all her ducklings in her wake.
