A Common Meganser mother-duck surrounded by a huge brood of 75 ducklings on a Minnesota lake spotted recently by wildlife photographer Brent Cizek.
Normally, a Merganser will only incubate a maximum of 20 ducklings. In this case, according to field editor Kent Kaufmann of Audubon, the mother had probably adopted several dozen strays that had lost their own mothers.
Guests wade across 150m of shallow water from the nearby resort island of Sirru Fen Fushi to the 6m tall stainless steel cube whose figurative human, plant and coral shapes can be explored above and below the water.
And then everyone goes back to the resort and has a good long think about what just happened.
