May Flowers... and Ducklings!

I went walking in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park today. I'd been hoping to get some good shots of migrating Warblers, but there's a front coming with a lot of rain, and the advance of the front is kicking up some wind, so small birds were pretty much hiding in the thick leaves to stay out of the chaos. I did manage to get some shots of new Spring flowers, and then there were these two little ducklings on the shore of the north duck pond (Mama and Papa were a few feet away making sure I didn't make any threatening moves). So it was worth the walk.

  1. Aw...the ducklings certainly steal the show, don't they? How adorable they are! Love it.

  2. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you. you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
