As Good As It Gets…..

Mama Duck & Her 5 Ducklings, originally uploaded by candy_rose.

As someone who rarely leaves home without her camera, I was rather upset with myself last week for being unprepared when a Mama duck and her five ducklings came strolling up the front lawn. Don't get me wrong we get our fair share of nature around here (a wood duck came in through our chimney last year), but never have I seen a duck and her ducklings in my front yard.

I went to grab my camera but of all things…it was dead. In the meantime I thought to charge it for a few minutes, hoping they hadn't gone too far when a slow moving tractor decided to scare them away. I was bummed thinking I'd missed out. Fortunately they had only gone as far as my neighbors (about an acre away), and I was able to run and snap a picture! I just love how it turned out. Aren't they adorable?!

The moral of the story is things work out in the end, just like they're supposed to, and when you least expect them to!

Have a great Thursday!
