Photographer Frank Cone shot this image early June 6 at Walla Walla Point Park. Here's how he described the scene: "As I walked out to the bench I noticed the merganser and chicks sitting on a log, once they spotted me they immediately moved into the water. That's when the merganser chicks started moving on the back of the Mother merganser. This was kind of a bucket list shot for me. I followed them down the riverfront for about 100 yards until they drifted out of sight." (Frank Cone photo)

After unloading the 700-pound behemoth in her small residence, I headed five miles east to Peshastin along Highway 2.
