Happy Duckling

When we go up to our favorite lake on Mt Hood (Trillium Lake), there are always a lot of mother ducks with their babies. Its kinda fun to see them grow. We go up often enough that we are able to really follow how big they are all getting. The last time we went about 2 weeks ago, these older ducklings still had all their fuzz, but were getting almost big enough to start growing feathers. The one in the middle by his mom was very excited to see us, and wiggled his little body and wings for me at just the right moment!

  6. I just love photos of ducks and ducklings! They always have a *smile* on their face and it makes me happy, too! What a life ~ swimming, eating, tipping for treasures under the water! Oh, to be a duck! ;~P
