The miracle of life...

This morning we were happy to see a new clutch of ducklings on the pond. baby ducklings

Actually, the ducklings were born in the cow pasture which has some brushy areas. I found the ducklings trying to get to the pond from the pasture. There is a chain-link fence and a small road between the pasture and the pond. The ducklings could easily pass through the fence, but momma duck could not. So the little fellows would go through the fence, get about halfway across the road, realize that momma wasn't following, and then go back to momma. Why momma didn't cross the fence is one of those unanswered philosophical questions usually reserved for chickens and roads. So, I went over, picked momma up, and put her over the fence. Shortly the whole raft was merrily paddling around the pond.
