I have a very simple picture for this weeks challenge. I took the picture with my youngest daughter back in the spring. While checking on the growth of the Daisies on the side of our house, I was startled by a duck, that suddenly took to flight, making a horrible noise as it shot straight up in the air. When I then looked into the plants, this is what we spotted.
Molly wanted to bring the eggs inside, but I convinced her that we needed to give the mama duck a chance to return to take care of the eggs, and that we had to let nature take its course. I will save you the horror of what we found the next morning when we checked up on the eggs. After a quick explanation about nature and survival of the fittest, I promised my daughter that if the duck returns this year, we will rescue any eggs she might leave in our bushes again.
Is it wrong that I am hoping the duck is a little smarter next year, and finds that pond on the other side of our neighborhood.
