Ducklings

Photograph by Raymond Tzul, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

This is a picture of our newly born baby ducks. They are about a week old. The mother duck was killed by our neighbor's dog, and my mom did not know what to do. She was advised to set up a homemade incubator, and the baby ducks were born a couple of weeks later. This particular picture shows one of the baby ducks snuggling next to another one while keeping an eye on the camera as we took the photo.
