At first, I thought there were just leaves and detritus in the pool. Then, I saw movement. And out of the shadows on the far bank came a mother and her ducklings, taking a swim, hunting for goodies.
After a bit of hunting, she led them back to the far bank, away from all of us watching from the bridge.
