Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

DSCF4188

Good morning from a cooler Hastings.  The storm I predicted yesterday didn’t eventuate but it has cooled down and rained a little last night.  I do feel for those melting in Australia.  Keep cool. What a time of contrasts- the big freeze in the Northern Hemisphere and the heat wave in the south.

Anyway the theme for this weeks The Daily Post is family.  I only have the usual boring poses of my family.  They are very wary of me with my camera around them so freeze up and try to spoil any pictures.  You now the sort, the photos that come out at 21sts and other anniversaries.  They wouldn’t appreciate me putting them on my blog so the next best thing are these ducks.

The mother duck is very protective of her offspring.  She is constantly quacking in a low tone to her children to keep them around her.  She is constantly alert and ready to chase off any interlopers.  We can learn a little from her I think.

She doesn’t mind the odd sparrow visiting.

And as with any family there are the squabbles among the siblings.

Thanks for visiting and here are some other great blogs too.
