The Kids

*****
Begging for breakfast from TOM. Momma duck brought her babies up from the pond behind our hotel each day for breakfast. She had six total on the first day, but on the last day of our visit, she only brought up three.  I hope they didn't end up as an appetizer for the two gators that also lived in the pond : (

I hope that, too! I love the colours of these youngsters. The shadows inbetween add tremendous depth to the shot. Just gorgeous.

Well that's the cutest set of triplets I have ever seen.

Love those fuzzy little waddlers. They are growing, but we still young ones this time of year, too.

This is a great age! Look at the hope in their eyes. Did Tom help 'em out?

Terrific photo, Barb!

No ugly ducklings there. "Gators?? I wouldn't bet on it! Mama needs a lecture on predators, I think.

Cute! Would a hawk eat them?

So cute! And what a sweet ritual to have of feeding the ducks at breakfast. I sure hope that the gators didn't get them. I know that gators have to eat but I want them to just eat ugly stuff that I don't care about.
