As most of you know by now, I’m obsessed with the ducks in my neighborhood. I don’t know what it is, but they make me happy. The new ducklings bring me a lot of joy, although sometimes it’s mixed with sorrow since not all make it. (is that the right term? I don’t know whether to call them “ducklings” or “chicks,” or just “babies” like a lot of the people around here.) Not all of the ducklings in the top photo made it, but a majority did. I guess I have to accept that and be grateful for the ones that did.
Sorry for the blurriness in the second photo. As usual, they had me laughing and my camera slipped. I really need to invest in a tripod. 😉
The top photo was taken in May; the bottom in early July. They’ve grown so much!
