Day 66/183: Ducklings

IMG_1302
You know how I usually select only two or three photos out of the hundreds I take to put into a journal post? Yeah, I didn’t do that this time. I figured we could all do with some duckling photos, so here are a dozen or so.

All these little fluffballs are only a few days old at most, and all of the mother ducks we’ve encountered have been trailing ten or more behind them.
