Sweet Finds

In keeping with the neglected monthly theme of "sweet", I need to share one of yesterday's finds. We took a road trip to a lovely town on Lake Huron, spending the day walking the pier, eating ice cream, and trying to stay warm. The sun was out and it was a beautiful day, other than the cold wind:). Oh well. As we walked the pier we came upon three families of Mallard ducks, all a bit territorial, all trying to share the same waterfront. This family in particular caught our eye. Enjoy!

Awww! I saw some of these this weekend, but they were goslings (Canada geese, to be exact) and a bit older. Very sweet!

Aww, that's so sweet. I've been watching our ducks here in Minnesota for a trail of little ones, but no luck yet. Hopefully we'll see some babies soon.

Ducklings are some of my very favourite things - SO cute! We have some ducks on our canals but so far have only seen gosling, no ducklings. I wonder why? Maybe their season is a bit later. I hope so. :o)

Great to see the little ones walk infront of mom, now she's able to watch them closely. Great shot, made me smile (and I needed that) Hugs from this side of the world for you my friend.
