Portraits of a Young Duck
Our baby ducks are growing quickly and stay very busy, eating and drinking and growing and stretching. It is fun to watch them forage for food - they bob on top of the water, bottoms up and then back down, like corks or toys. When they hop in the pond, they tend to stay close to the shore unless mama gets in, too.
They are curious and come in close for a look before running away when mama murmurs at them.
They spend a great deal of time grooming themselves, too. They must be approaching teenagerhood.
