Mother duck and her ducklings.

By pentaxpatty
From the trip along the Cromford Canal, this mother duck and her babies, they looked nearly as big as she is.
Further along lots of empty nest so I doubt these two will be here much longer.
Thank you all for the lovely comments and votes on the Dutchess.
Have a good day, Friday and August already.

Lovely picture of this family group Patricia, healthy looking off springs. Hope your day is a good one.

Lovely to see Patty, our local ducklings haven't done so well this year, we have trouble with the gulls. You have captured these beautifully. Enjoy the first day of August, this year is flying by so fast. SmileSmileSmileSmile
