Apricot wood duck with new babies; I suspect she is an escapee, but she has been living on this lake for over a year now, with her normal colored mate. She is not quite as flighty as the other wood ducks, which makes me think she may have been bred in captivity.

What a handful with 12 little ducklings... goodly contrast in the color of the little ones... a couple have the lightness of the mother's plumage while others have the darker coloring of the father. The contrast between mother and ducklings and the darker water helps to make the family stand out strongly in the image.

What a responsibility to have take all those kids out! And what a good job she's doing. Very nice colours especially around the mum's eye and beak.

Superb capture! I've never seen one this color.

Fantastic details here - your focus was spot on. Especially like the individual ripples of water implying movement of these baby ducks and their mom. I'll bet having that many babies would drive a mother "QUACKERS". Sorry about that - just couldn't help myself.

Unusual for me to comment on an image that relies solely on the "Ah" factor. However this does not rely on the ah factor.
The exposure, colour and sharpness are spot-on, in spite of the high contrast lighting.
