Mom and Dad Mallard have their hands full!

This Mom and Dad mallard have 10 babies!!! What a wingful! These little guys were leaping around and catching bugs to eat. I wasn't fast enough to get them with my camera...took a lot of pictures like this.

no ducks...
So I remembered the video function on the camera , yea!  Here are the mallard family swimming and snacking on gnats!


  1. That was soooo cute! I’m going to have to take my grandkids over there to see them. Don’t you just love the video setting on a camera? Just remember it’s not like taking a picture on a camera. You can’t take a portrait shot with it. I saw Obama speak during the campaign in 2007. I was really close to him and wanted to get video. I turned the camera sideways to get all of him. That didn’t work so well. You have to turn your head sideways to watch it.

  2. Sherry I know about the portrait video thing...tried to take one of Hank jumping straight up in the air.... came out really good, just one little problem, sideways...
