The ducklings are growing so quickly now and seeing away any mature ducks who dare try to steal their food. It is amazing how fast time has flown since these were just cute little tiny things. The ducks along the waters edge are so used to being fed from passers by they seem far too tame in many ways but their parents seem to have the intelligence to know where their young are safest.
This family live at the foot of our garden by a pond which they often stay on.
This has been a joy to witness and I know I have enough information to paint these little ducklings soon now. That is when I stop watching them!
