Oh, that 5th photo is precious! They must have been terrified, but after that they won't be afraid of anything, I bet!
Beautiful pictures, fruos blog, congratulations
Thanks everyone :) I am thankful for peripheral vision. I was photographing moments from my July 12, 2010 Dabbling Ducks post when I saw this Mallard family approaching the dam. A right place right time moment. I was lucky to have had a view (although a little more distant than I would have preferred)from below. About five minutes after the Mallard family had gone over the falls, a couple approached me below the dam. They had a top view and didn't get to see them actually go over or safely move on. They were very concerned and anxiously asked if I had seen the babies go over the falls!... and were they okay? I was happy to be able to report to them the good news.
