First Swim

2010 05 15_0219_edited-1

On Saturday, Quackers took her ducklings for a lesson. She was teaching them how to swim.

After the swim she foraged with them, and settled them down under her downy feathers in the yard, sometimes in the sun and sometimes in the shade.

Remarkable photograph - I can see their little feet under the water. So very precious. Thanks to you and Quackers for sharing them with us!

such a lovely view! We have a couple wood ducks in our woods. I think they must swim in our stream, we found some droppings there yesterday.

Is Quackers your pet then? What Joy to see the babes swimming!
