Making way for ducklings...

On my way home Saturday...


A family was crossing the road



A wonderful reminder of a childhood favorite, Make way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey.

Mama duck was quite proud of her brood of twelve, and wasn't at all quick to waddle them on across the road and into the ditch.

Awwww-I love seeing that.

I stopped traffic on a busy highway one time for a family of ducks. Made people mad, but I didn't care. ;-)

I have to rescue turtles from the road, too :)
