That's Just Ducky!

Now that all of our leaves have fallen off the trees, I will go back to "late summer" and "early fall" shots
that I haven't shared with you yet.

My brother owns a wonderful little cabin on Lake Medora
near Copper Harbor, in the U.P. of Michigan.

There are always ducks on his lake.

One day, when we stopped in for a visit, one mother duck had darling ducklings with her
and came very close to their dock.

I was thrilled to be able to get some close photos of them.

One of the ducklings:

Just LOOK at his cute face!!!:

Quacking me up!:

Mom, flapping her wings:

Swimming amongst the pretty stones in the lake:

Three of the ducklings, taking a sunbath on the rocks.  I loved how one was "peeking" down at the water, as if to say: "Wow...that is a lonnnnng way down there!":

They obviously had a LOT to talk about that day!:

May water run off your back, (like this duck's) today
and always.....

Hi Joan, It's great to hear from you.. It's been forever!!!! Great pictures of the ducks.

You probably don't know that I have been in the hospital twice the past month.. Finally had hernia surgery last week. I'm home and doing better. But--I was a sick little gal...
