Duck duck duck duck duck...

I was walking to the Metro Thursday - left work an hour early to go to Prince George's Plaza for an errand - and spotted these guys in the creek between the parking lot and the station. If the geese have their hands full (metaphorically speaking) with five, pity Mrs Mallard: she's got sixteen!
