Photographer's Note

"Make Way for Duckings," a children's book by Robert McCloskey first published in 1941, is about a family of mallards that make their way across Boston from the Charles River to a little island in the pond in the Boston Public Garden. The book was so popular it became the official children's book for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

More than 70 years later, feeding the ducks in the park is a popular ritual with children and parents alike. I love the little girl's expression as she stares at the duck :)
