Just ducky

At first, I thought there were just leaves and detritus in the pool. Then, I saw movement. And out of the shadows on the far bank came a mother and her ducklings, taking a swim, hunting for goodies.

After a bit of hunting, she led them back to the far bank, away from all of us watching from the bridge.

And now, a little humor for your day:

Q: What do you get if you cross a duck with fireworks?

A: A firequacker

Q: What's another name for a clever duck?

A: A wise quacker

Q: What do you call it when it rains chickens and ducks?
A: Foul (fowl) weather.

Reminds me of "Make Way for Ducklings" which is one of my favorite children's books. So cute!

It's always an uplifting moment to watch youngsters and their mamas in nature. Reassuring that life goes on, no matter what.
