His remarkable pictures of a mama merganser duck being followed by no fewer than 76 ducklings have gone viral, being shared by millions across social media and being picked up by news media across the world.

Next for the duckling is an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, with Cizek teasing on his social media pages that they will feature on Friday night's show.

"Can't get enough of Mama Merganser? Be sure to watch Jimmy Fallon Friday night! I've heard she makes an appearance," he wrote.

He's found himself an unexpected worldwide sensation, which for the most part has been an uplifting experience.

"Overall it has been really positive," he said. "At times it's been a little overwhelming trying to keep up with media requests and emails from curious people.

"Through this I have been able to learn so much about this species, and it's great that so many others are learning about them as well."
