BELTRAMI COUNTY, MINNESOTA (FOX NEWS) – A female duck at a Minnesota lake may have just won the “mom of the year” award.
Amateur photographer Brent Cizek snapped stunning images showing a female duck leading 76 ducklings on Lake Bemidji, about 150 miles northwest of Duluth.
“[I] couldn’t have asked for a better photo opportunity,” Cizek told CBC Radio’s As It Happens.
“The photo just makes you question, you know, how is this possible? How did it happen? How is the mom taking care of so many ducks?”
Cizek said he first spotted the massive brood on June 27 while he was out on the lake. He counted at least 56 ducklings that day, and decided to return a few weeks later to see if he could spot them again.
When he saw the mother duck, a common merganser, and her ducklings last week, there were about two dozen more following her.
