rebels and quackers and feathered snackers
The ducklings pick off the bugs on the lily pads, roaring around like little motor boats.
Rebel duckling who paddled like a cartoon character to find mom.
Running up for safety on the rock like a rocket. A boy's joyful laughter echoed across the lake. I hope he has a better appreciation of wildlife!
Go, ducklings, go! I often wonder how the adults manage to get enough food as they maintain vigilance for weasels, fishers and the like.
I love watching the animal world as they juggle for territory. They never fight to the death, and they just do a 'who is in charge' dance! The ducklings love the foliage, as the bugs dance about in the shelter from the wind. You can see this dance in the video below.
