  1. Now that’s a happy looking bunch of ducks my friend. I hope you are feeling just as happy as they appear to be, and i hope your weather is at least a little warmer than mine. You have a great week-end now, and stay warm.

    • Thank you my friend. Truth be told it has been a rough couple of months (hence my lack of new posts). I appreciate so much that you took the time to look at some of my “older” photos, all the more so if the ducklings bring a smile. Thank you always for your warm words and support. My husband and I are both grateful! You too, please take good care.

      • You and yours have plenty of friends who have no problem at all when you take that always (and absolutely MOST) important personal time, and we’ll always be here happy to see whatever new postings arrive when the time is right. You take care now, and know your husband and yourself are always included in my prayers.

    • Thank you so much! 😀
      I could also ‘feel’ the emotion between the Mama Duck and her babies.
      Your artwork and photography are also so beautiful, and so full of positive energy ❤

    • Dear Kim,
      Thank you so much for your comments!
      I often wonder the same thing – how you can always seem to capture such warmth and emotion in your photography and writing. Especially your most recent ‘Turkey’ entry 🙂

      To answer your question…well, I simply try to enjoy each moment with the animals, and show them proper respect and space. When I’m blessed to witness moments such as this, I do my best to keep a memory of it. And sometimes, I’m lucky enough to get a photo. Other times, I put my camera down and simply try to ‘enjoy’ the moment without interrupting anything.

      Warm wishes,
      Takami

    • Hello Clifford,

      Yes, you’re absolutely right about the little ducklings! 🙂 I find it pretty amazing that they do indeed get right back up and continue the path (usually running after Mum) even when they’ve been blown off their little webbed feet. They are quite tough! 😉

      Thank you very much for your stopping by, and for your comment.
      Best wishes,
      Takami

  2. Hi Takami,

    Wonderful pictures. Those baby ducklings are too cute and adorable. Whereas every babies are also adorable, but ducks are something different. They remind me of Donald Ducks from cartoon shows. Too cute.. Great artistic captures buddy!!!

    Have a fun weekend!
    Swetank.

    • Hello Swetank,
      Thank you very much for your comment! I am happy you liked the baby ducklings. I agree, all babies are adorable, but baby ducks are special 🙂 I also liked Donald Duck very much when I was a young child.
      I hope you have a good start to this week!

      Best wishes,
      Takami

  3. Awwww… I love, love, love this series, Takami! :)) It makes me so happy to see these beautiful photos! The ducklings are so adorable and mama is truly a beautiful duck–I love her plumage. It’s so heart-warming to see mama and babies together. I especially love the last two shots–lovely composition and depth of field. Your patience and perseverance paid off–wonderful photography, my friend! :))

    • Aw, shucks. Thank you so much Jeannie 🙂
      I noticed that Mama Duck often gets overlooked (most folks seem focused on the babies – who are adorable – or Papa Duck – with his beautiful bright colours…) so I wanted to give her some publicity 😉 I love the brown colours of her plumage, and she always manages to look beautiful in spite of a hectic schedule!

      I was laughing as I took the second shot – the little guy almost looks like he’s caught being naughty, and I love how wet he is 😀 And of course, Mom came to fix him up :))

    • Good morning Herve 🙂 I am happy to receive your kind words! Thank you 🙂 Yes, baby ducks are beautiful, and parents are beautiful too. I wish the best for them…I hope they have a good life.

    • Thank you, Randall! The ducklings were being ‘typical kids’ and it was nice to capture some of these moments. They grow so quickly! Mama Duck was a beauty, and also very busy 😉 😀 Hope all is well across the pond 😉

  4. Nice photo set.
    All photographs are that I feel the love between parents and children.
    Also I love the “eye” of them. It is the eyes full of love.
    Your photos are excellent and it tells me the importance of the life.
    Thank you for the lovely pictures always.
