Guess everyone is tired of looking at my photo of turkeys. I've been raising baby ducks for a month or more and finally let them loose in my small pond yesterday. Still fairly small (look at their tiny wings), I feared I might lose at least one to a family of owls last night, but I still had eight of them this morning (Yea!). I shot this photo this afternoon....they were on the pond bank preening themselves after some playtime in the water. I was unable to herd them back into their protective enclosure late this afternoon, so I have my fingers crossed that they can hide from the owls again tonight.
