I love living next to a lake.
My daughter and I were treated to lots and lots of ducklings yesterday on our nature walk. Of course, I had to get lots and lots of pictures of the little darlings, too! The mama ducks were very accomodating of my intrusive lens.

For the most part.

Some of the mamas had ten ducklings. Others had around six or seven. But I'm not sure where the mama was for these two!

It was a beautiful, perfect day.

But the most beautiful thing I saw wasn't a duckling or a flower...
...but my own, beautiful little girl.
Happy spring!


  1. Beautiful Melissa! I'm guessing that she resembles her lovely mother!

  2. Awwww:)) You took some awesome pictures close up:)) It looks like it was a nice happy day for all of you!

  3. Just perfect. What a beautiful, easygoing day you had!

  4. I keep watching the lake near my house for the babies to appear. Shouldn't be long now!

  5. Gorgeous! I love spring. Capturing pictures of new and growing life is a blessing.

  6. Babies! They're adorable. I love seeing such little families out and about.

  7. I love, love, love baby ducks and geese! I haven't spotted any around here yet, but I know they'll pop up soon.

  8. Gorgeous photos of the lovely baby birds and your adorable daughter.

  9. How adorable--all the little ones! Although your daughter isn't so little anymore, and becoming very lovely indeed.


I love to hear from you!
