This is a picture that my cousin sent of her daughter’s swim meet in Southern California.  Apparently the mother duck thought taking part in the swim meet would get her ducklings some good swimming skills!

Mama duck probably wanted to give her ducklings a close-up look at how NOT to swim. Obviously too much splashing. /Gary
