Ducks...and a Seagull

Hello everyone!  A warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen is a very short clip...just one minute!  It is about a mother and her ducklings walking and getting blown by the wind.  I think it is so sweet how they seem undaunted and are able to regroup.  Enjoy!  :)

The photos I am sharing are ones that I took on my nature park walk earlier this week.  I found a group of ducks.  In one of the photos a seagull decided to come and join them for my photo shoot.  :)  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  4. Oh my, I wonder if that seagull has a bit of brain damage? Or maybe was kicked out of his flock...

  8. That Wilson quote is true! It might look like most ducks are the same, but just like people, we ought to look closer to really be able to tell the difference =)

  18. Oh, my, I had never thought about how the wind could roll around those little ducklings! So glad they regrouped. Mama knew what to do. :-)

  19. Me ha dado pena ver como el viento arrastraba a esos pobres patitos. Menos mal que al final todo salió bien. Un abrazo,
