A waddle in the park.....




Spotted in a paddock near home this pretty Mum
was being followed by her brood of new-born ducklings 
but try as I may  it was impossible to capture them
Way too quick for me!  ... and so here is proud mother duck
nestled in amid the green

Our World Tuesday

Oh, isn't she pretty? Smart of her to nestle amid green that is tall enough to avoid captures of her ducklings, because some captures aren't as friendly as yours.

What a lovely shot (of the friendly sort!) of a protective mother. Pity the littl'uns were so shy.

The ducklings would have fun trying to get through those plants.

How beautiful she is indeed!! Those ducklings are hard to capture -- I think Mom has taught them well!! Wonderful capture, Dianne!! Have a great week!

Hi Dianne,
