This mother duck and her three ducklings kept chasing me around the campus while I took photos today. They kept hoping I'd feed them. Next time I'll have to bring some corn for them.

Yesterday, I saw -- luckily before I ran over them -- another mother duck with two, much smaller, fuzzier ducklings crossing the main street in Whitesburg a block from the Courthouse. I imagine that the flooding displaced them from their nesting area. Although I could have gone around them I decided to stop, since there were several other cars behind me and I wasn't sure that they would see the ducklings in time -- I almost hadn't. Mother duck was very business like and hurried her babies across the road in just a few minutes. Too bad I couldn't reach my camera in time.

I haven't seen my (like I'm the one who laid the eggs-duh!) duckling in a while, they must be getting pretty big by now. Love the action in this shot.
