Little ducks

These are some pictures of the baby ducks that hatched on the pond behind our house. So many of the communities in Jacksonville have retention ponds. Ours is a good size, with lots of waterfowl on it, fish, turtles (of all sizes... and they eat the baby ducks) :( But 7 of the 13 have survived. One had a hurt foot, and our next door neighbors caught it and put it in a cage for a couple days. I went over and held it yesterday for a few minutes. It is now back with it's siblings. When they get scared on the water, they move so fast, it looks like they are walking on the water! They are so cute. I think these 7 now have a good chance of survival to adulthood. I wish some more would hatch! They are so fun to watch.
Just wanted to share. :)
