2016…and time for a new meme from Helena. This year it is “Snap”: between 2 and 4 photos that create a visual set.

Or maybe just stretching her wings:
But one duckling tried to follow mom’s lead:
Added bonus: the ducklings also demonstrated their ability to dive under water, as captured in this video:
