Ducks Galore!

It's Thursday, and that means Alphabe-Thursday over at Jenny's place! Today we are studying the letter D and, for me, it's Ducks!!

Earlier this week I decided to go for a duck walk at a local park. It was a nice day, not too hot yet, and apparently too early in the (late) morning for a lot of kids to be playing on the playground. This park has a big lake with a hiking trail around it, lots of trees, a cute area to sit and watch, and lots of ducks!





I brought bread to feed them -- maybe not the best diet but they sure do love it!! 



Wait for us! We want bread too!



I love duck feet ....



and duck bottoms!!



all together now!!



This rippling reflection is awesome! (and the duck bottom)
Click on it to get all the awesomeness!



Swimming away 



Walking away



Coming back



Taking off



Gathered together



Is that bread for me?
Darn those pigeons, they got there first ....



So the ducks know where to cross ....



Wait! Do you think the ducks know which crossing to take?
I love the way the duck sign is the one with the WORDS!!



♥♥♥ Linking all the duckie cuteness to Alphabe-Thursday

LOL what an adorable post! I loved the photos!! We have a pond in this part of town and occasionally, we'll go toss bread at them. You got me wanting to do this again.

Great photos of the ducks. WE have lots of them in Holland, plentiful as birds. Glad you stopped by my blog. xo Jenny

OMGoodness, what a great post with absolutely delightful photos! I too love to visit the ducks on our Concho River. They are so entertaining and a source for some great photography....love the Taking Off photo and the water reflections, too! I hope you get over to Lola's next time you are in Abilene. It's well worth the trip...in fact all of Buffalo Gap is a photo shoot waiting to happen.

Awesome job with this post! I love ducks. We are lucky to live pretty near a duck pond, too, and it also has one of those duck xing signs. That is too funny that the duck sign is the one with the words. Thanks for all of the great photos.

What a delightful duck walk.

At first I thought you were saying you were going to walk like a duck for exercise. My thighs were screaming in perceived sympathy.

Thank heavens, you were only looking at ducks!

They are cute, aren't they?

And I bet you would be cute doing a duck walk for exercise someday.

Sigh.

Thanks for the smile.
