Duckling Ducking

I took these yesterday afternoon:

The adults hissed at me at first, but I kept talking to them as I raised the camera and they let me get really close to their babies. These cuties in the top photos were less than two feet away from my toes.

You may remember me mentioning a little while ago two ducklings that seemed to be without parents, and the following day we only saw one?
We think this is the surviving one as it is bigger than the rest and fending for itself.

Isn’t she beautiful?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
