Ducklings

May 5, 2008

Speaking of springtime and animals, this wise mama duck lays her eggs in the courtyard of my school every year. This way the ducklings are away from the foxes until they’re at least a bit bigger and have a better chance. This year there are 17 ducklings! They are fed and watered by the folks at the school…and the word is that once they’re big enough it’s a bit of a trick getting the ducks through the school maze and back outside. We’re going to wait longer this year than last year, because last year they let the ducks out too early and only two survived. Nature is harsh!

(Photographs taken through the glass door window)

These photos were taken at least a week ago and the ducklings already much bigger… I’ll have to do a follow-up photo shoot.

    I like the picture of the ducklings waddling or walking or something-ing in front of the pillar. Lovely.
