Sometimes the best subjects are those close to home. At a little pond, not far from my house about two weeks ago several little ducklings were born. For the first week I tried to capture some images of them, but the weather hadn’t cooperated and frankly neither did the ducklings. Multiple days of rain kept me away. This past week we finally had a couple of beautiful days. I grabbed my camera and headed out at the first opportunity of a some better light. I watched the ducklings paddle around the small pond for a good couple of hours total. It was great fun to watch them play with each other, race after each other across the water, and just be little, fuzzy, and cute.
