Just Ducky


I spotted these cute little ducklings one rainy Sunday a few weeks ago.  They were swimming around with their mama in a neighborhood pond.




I stood out in the pouring rain with my zoom lens, patiently waiting for them to swim near.  It took awhile, but finally my persistence paid off.  Not only did I capture these duckling's adorable expressions, I really like the silver shimmering ripples in the water.

These little guys remind me of my own two children, now both adults and on their own.  Like the ducklings, it seems children stay little for such a short while.  Before you know it, they've grown up and left the nest.

  7. How sweet! That is a terrific shot. A photo of those baby ducklings is worth being patient for. I know what you mean about how quickly children grow. My older daughter will be turning 22 this month, and I often ask myself "Where did all those years go?"...
