The mother duck seems to be used to my presence now. I’m able to get quite close to her without her even flinching. However, I did push my luck and get a tad too close while trying to frame my shot (I don’t remember if it was this exact shot), because she got a bit restless, fanned her tail out, and started breathing loudly through her beak, as if to warn me not to come any closer. 🙂 I backed off a bit, and she was fine. As I say in the title, she was a good sport.
