Wood duck & baby in the pond

My local Wood duck mum still has her rapidly growing baby by her side every day. I find it interesting that when they are on the pond, the Pacific Blacks seem to help out in guarding the young one. They swim around it and follow them around the water in a very protective way.

Unusual to see the other colours in the wings when stretched like this

Didn't know which one to reply too.
The pic's on this page look better. Lol
Nice shots, they are looking like mum already.
