The ducks are really sweet. Sounds like you had fun ~ mental note ~ must bring bread ;-)

The ducks are adorable. We tend to forget the bread for the ducks when we go down by the bay until we are half way there :)

I love Ducks, would love to have a pond full of them. I put your blog on my page, could you tell me how to make a button? My email is barbarad@aol.com
Thanks
Barb

How sweet that the ducks would remember you. We had 2 in our backyard pond one spring but they didn't stay because of our dog.

Donna said...

Haha, they have you trained!

Susan said...

We had the cutest ducklings and goslings on our pond and also fed them some bread (and cracked corn). A friend, who is a Naturalist at a park said the bread is like our junk food--no wonder they loved it. XOXO

Such sweet photos of the ducks. We see a few in the bay when we walk along the beach, but I don't think they are the same ducks each time.

Oh, look at those ducks! That's so sweet that they remembered you. I love these pictures today because I appreciate nature so much. I got to see this precious duck family through your lens.

Thank you for following Red Rose Alley. Have a blessed week.

A sweet story. Often we do not give animals enough credit. The drake is quite handsome.

LindyLou Mac said...

Yes of course they remembered you, it was nothing to do with the fact that a human sighting normally means food. How could you forget. :)
