A lone Black-bellied Whistling Duck duckling, dabbling while its parents watch and protect from nearby.

I think this is the one remaining duckling from what started out as eight ducklings.

Interestingly, the parents pay as much attention to this one duckling as they did to all eight. To ducks, all life is precious.
