Awwwww…… a picture story.
1. Shelducks and their offspring walking towards us. At this point I think there are nine ducklings:
2. Daddy Shelduck kept disappearing into the grass all the way down the path to flush out another and another (and then there’s the wee guy on the extreme right who came tanking into view at some rate ):
3. This continued until ALL FOURTEEN ducklings were in some sort of order when they all did a right turn into the field and went for a walk:
Hours afterwards I still can’t look at these pictures without smiling, can you?
