Quackers & croakers

Another family of ducks from last month to brighten the day of anybody needing a bit of pure cuteness to get them through the day. This isn't the family I featured earlier in the year.
Where did the sunshine go anyway? This month just seems to be cloud and wetness again. I suppose the ducks don't really mind but I crave a bit of sunshine on my face. This wetness this week seems to have triggered the annual frog pilgrimage down the hill again with several hoppers fetching up in the gardens again. This one is having a rest on my back step before he sets off again.

  2. Yes. They aren't the most chivalrous of beasts.

  8. Wonderful shots, Michael. I think ducks make wonderful parents. I hope the toad is hiding from predators. :)
