Family of Ducks

8 Feb

The joy of new life is wondrous. Whatever the species, infancy holds a special captivation.

One of my favourite sights is that of a brood of ducklings paddling along with its parents. It’s amazing, the speed that those tiny webbed feet can muster.

The rarity of my seeing this delightful interaction between parents and siblings of the feathered variety adds to my elation at being able to capture the moment on film.

The beauty of Australian nature is infinite.

    Nature itself is a miracle everywhere. I’m always amazed to see that soft cotton wool down turn into feathers. Efficient, streamlined, waterproof feathers. Our own bodies don’t do that much adjusting, it starts skin it stays skin. The picture is perfect Margaret.

      That’s so true, David. You’re the first person who has observed that to me.
      Thanks for kudos about photo. 🙂

    Maybe that is why I am so fascinated with anything Australian because there are unique sights that you can only see there. However the scene of the ducklings is precious no matter where in this world you see them. Lovely shot.
