We were down at our lake house last weekend, and had quite a surprise waiting for us – one of the ducks had babies! This thrilled me to no end, and I got a few shots of the babies and their mama, and wanted to share them with you. Get ready to say “Awww”.
And this one is just too cute for words. I got such a kick out of them diving in – this looks like synchronized swimming to me:
Mama duck finally brought them up to our lawn, and it was so cute. They make this little squeaking noise and they are very busy. I’m not sure where papa duck was – geez. When they headed back to the water, we enjoyed the little “plopping” sounds as they jumped in.
The following day we were surprised yet again. A different mama duck appeared with about 12 teeny tiny babies. The ducklings were little bitty round fuzz balls. I did get a couple of pictures, but unfortunately they are on my camera and I think I left the cord at the other house *sigh*.
We are still waiting for Vlad and Vera Wing’s babies to be born. Those are our geese friends 🙂
I am so in love with our lake house, and watching the wildlife is so entertaining. It’s always hard to come back to this house 🙁
