Duck Tales

Mrs., on land looking for food,
 
Mr. waited patiently in the water.

The "Walk of Shame"...she didn't have much luck.

Mr. thinking "that's why I stayed in the water"!

Images taken on April 17, 2013 from our afternoon at
The Manasquan Reservoir
When we had our first Spring Picnic There.

  11. I think they are both pretty! I love picnics, sounds like a fun thing to do soon. Does getting McDonalds and taking it to the lake and eating it in a car count? That's what we did yesterday!

  12. Aww, the walk of shame is a little sad. Poor pretty duck doing all the work. This is a fun little series. I'm envisioning a children's picture book.
