It was nice to see mama Mallard come out of the bushes with the little ones in tow. I was pleasantly surprised when she brought them directly to me, then went under the dock directly under where I was standing. I had the 1.4x telecoverter on the lens, so my AF was slowed down significantly. Due to the slowed AF, super close distance and how rambunctious these guys were I only managed to get this one shot with a duckling in acceptable focus. It was a fun challenge and I look forward to shooting them again.
