Ducks Save the Day!

Sometimes, I just need a break from my children. Of course I love them, but liking them? Sometimes, not so much lately. Yesterday I had to get out of the house to “escape” from them for a bit.

I moseyed on over to our neighborhood pond with my camera and was met by the resident ducks. They instantly put a smile on my face.

The dark one must be the leader. “Come on over guys! Sarah’s here!”


“Come on a little closer. This lady likes to take pictures of us.”




“Alright. Let’s head on back. She’s feeling calmer now and can head back to her family. Ducks, we’ve done our job!”

    ...there must be something going on right now, cause I've been having those days with my kids lately, too!

  6. Aww how neat! I love photographing animals in nature ;) and we all need a little break sometime or else we'd be bald from pulling our hair out! LOL! ;)
