The main reason for my fascination with this new born baby animals is their naivety.
While adult animals learned to fear us human beings (and right they are!), the youngsters still have this open minded and curious attitude.

At a certain point I had nine ducklings wiggling around me, one exploring my lens and another one trying to eat my shirt.
Too close to take pictures, but too cute for words.

It took a while to convince the suspicious mother, but she finally accepted me.
At the end of they day she was so used to my appearance that she felt asleep beside me while the youngsters were fooling around.
As if she was thinking: Oh well…if you’re here anyway, maybe you can do my job…….:D
