Sorry about the grumpiness of the past couple of days. Life works that way sometimes. Anyway, here's a little something to lift your spirits - I know these babies lift mine.
This Mallard mama was very protective of her babies, but we stood still enough that she let them swim near us. One of them had me rolling with laughter as he chased a tiny blue dragonfly. He looked like a fluffy motorboat. ;o)
Don't you just love Spring?
Update: At last report, the ducklings and their mother haven't been seen since before the storm. =o(
