This is great, for the reason stated, first time I have seen this kind of duck and also I have never seen baby ducks riding on mommas back like this before. Very cool!

Seen little ones straggling along behind before but never riding on back, that's a wild shot Peace

Cool shot Mike! Looks like you got several good photos on your vacation.

I REALLY like this photo, Mike! In addition to the comparative rarity of this duck, you managed to capture a delightful moment with the chicks riding on mom's back. And for some reason, the ripples in the water seem to add a wonderful motion to this, especially with the pattern being interrupted by the duck's wake. Really great photo, buddy!
