A.k.a. the slimy seven. While my husband and I walked by a storm water drain, we saw this mother duck, sitting very still and all seven ducklings not moving either.
Not having my camera, Alan took the shot and the mother lay low on the water (trying to be invisible?) as her offspring started moving about. There is a lot of slime on the top of the water, due to the warm weather, but I guess you have to be a duck to want to swim in it.
It’s for Becky’s squares.
