Nature Walks – Proud Momma Mallard

I keep thinking our baby ducklings are long gone, and then I keep seeing more; tiny babies too. But this season has been full of surprises, and I love every one of them too. Today, we saw not one, but two sets of duck families. One had just one duckling, who who was more like a teenager really (I think I saw this one when it was a baby too, just a couple of weeks ago). The another proud momma had three little ducklings following her all around, and these were just tiny babies. I will take as many ducklings as we get, and I will never complain about seeing all of them. They are just so darn cute. πŸ™‚

I am only going to share the tiny babies with you all today. Larry had the day off, so we took a long walk today and we saw Momma Mallard and her crew on two of our lakes. First, they were all out for a swim on the the 4th lake.

The family made the trek from the 4th lake over to the 3rd lake where we saw them again on our way back. They decided to walk along the shore for a bit on the 3rd lake.

Hope you all have ducky day. πŸ™‚
