I was down at the Wetlands yesterday and
I had a little laugh when I saw Mumma Duck and her latest brood
When I first spied her she was taking them for a walk
I could hear her quacking away before I even saw her
She was still telling them what to do when I arrived
click and enlarge to see the detail
Then they slowed down as if to say
Do we have to?
Next thing I know is they are really putting on their parts
and refusing to follow her
Looking back to where they came from
So I stood and watched as she gathered them all in a bunch
and walked them back the other way
She knew exactly what they wanted
Here they are gathering at the waters edge
Take your marks! Get set!
You can see the anticipation in their faces
One of them is really itching to jump in
Got what they wanted didn't they lol
Where do you think you're going ?
Theres always one little b........in the family isn't there
Look at him showing off !!
