in reality, there were two goosanderlings lazily riding on their mum, while their four ducky siblings had to swim for themselves.

the caption to that linked photo explains that the photographer returned a few days later after some wild weather and only two of the ducklings had survived. gee i wonder which ones...

*suspicious, squinty eyes*
