Chilling out

On the same hot and humid 90º day, the only action at Gettysburg College quarry pond was a duckling taking a refreshing swim under the watchful eye of mother Mallard. About the size of a rubber ducky, it still showed the reddish spot on its bill where the egg tooth had helped it crack out of the egg shell. In a month the youngster will be close to the size of its parents.
