Esther's First Eggs

Esther found her first duck eggs on the tundra, on the way to our camp this past week. While we were driving the honda on the path by a large pond, a mallard duck flew up from the reeds on the edge. Upon inspection, we found a nest with two eggs. She was thrilled! Here are some very cute pictures of her with her discovery:

She wanted to know: Why didn't the mother duck stay with her baby eggs? I told her that the mother thought she could draw us away from the eggs if she flew away from her nest. What a cute thinker girl. :)
