Lucky Me

She saw me, and yet she swam.
I guess school must go on.

I wonder what she told her young one about me and the puppies?







How beautifully everything is arranged by Nature; as soon as a child enters the world, it finds a mother ready to take care of it.

  5. Very sweet, Barbara. Mama duck probably told her baby that you and the dogs are good friends and kind to nature. :)

  7. I forget about this other blog of yours and maybe it's even more active than the Long Hollow one. Just based on my little bit of reading and more documentary watching - the babies learn by imitation but it's odd that human parents seem to forget that.

    1. It is odd, I agree. Human parents depend on telling more than showing, don't they?

    1. We went back two days later and I didn't see her. I'm staying hopeful that they were just sleeping somewhere or the baby was old enough to fly.

  10. What a sweet mother and child pair. I think that she told her little one "People and their cameras just quack me up." ;)
