Close Encounter


of the Unbearably Cute Kind

Ducklings and Mom on Sluice Pond
I was standing waist deep in water, about to go for a swim in the pond behind my house (Sluice Pond – Lynn, Massachusetts), when two tiny ducklings and their watchful mom swam up and approached me within an arms length. Obviously, since I was about to go for a swim, I didn’t have my camera. They eventually swam off, and I took my swim. As I was getting out of the water, I noticed them heading back in my direction. I grabbed my camera and got back in the water. Once again, they came within three feet of me and graciously posed for pictures.
