Brent Cizek is a nature photographer who was visiting Minnesota for some pictures. He was hoping to capture some cool intimate scenes of animals in the natural surroundings.
He didn't think he'd get this intimate.
On his boat he noticed the winds were strong and waves choppy and thought it would be a bust.
But when he got to the shoreline, he saw what seemed to be a mother duck and a few ducklings.
Upon closer inspection that few turned into a few dozen.
He called this a once in a lifetime photo opportunity.
