Whistling Duck chicks

Even though the weather yesterday morning was beautiful, photographically it was a washout.  I gave up and started driving home but noticed some cars at a spot where some ducklings had been reported, so I pulled over and had a look.  I was rewarded with a good view of some Black Bellied Whistling Duck chicks.  Fantastic.  They look like fuzzy Bumblebees with beaks.  I didn’t want to get too close for fear of scaring them off so they were at the limit of where I could successfully grab some pictures, but it went OK.  It more than made up for the rest of the morning.
