Animal Friends of the Week: Three Ducklings in a Row

Three Ducklings in a Row-

Good morning from a crisp but sunny Hastings morning.  As I was working on my computer I had one eye on the skies outside.  We had another great sunrise.  I was a bit reluctant to go out, thinking it was a tad too cold.  But my itchy fingers took over and I went out with my cellphone and got some nice photos. They are for a later post.

Yesterday I got to meet Aletta from Nowathome.  It was great getting together and I got to show off Cornwall Park at it’s best.  Beautiful colours, calm waters and fantastic reflections.

The ducks were very vocal and active.  As we were walking around the back of the cricket pavilion I spotted these ducklings.  It was rather funny.  Every time we went to get closer, having only a cellphone on me, the ducklings would get up and walk towards their mother.  But they kept the same distance each time.  Another way of surviving the late summer/autumn weather and other aggressive ducks is staying together.  Which they did.  They always settled down in the same way too.

It was hard to get away from them.

I want to showcase our animal kingdom.  It runs from Tuesday New Zealand time and is weekly.  You can join in anytime at all over the week.  You can post your furry friends (babies), wild animals, birds, insects and butterflies.  Even reptiles are welcome.

Thanks for visiting and I would love to see your animal friend of the week.
