I always feel blessed when I get to see baby birds, goslings and ducklings. They grow up so quickly and they usually go through an ugly duckling stage. The ducklings that I saw along Meade Creek in Peterborough were not quite at the ‘ugly’ stage but they were no longer the cute fuzzy babies that they once were.
I was surprised how close the mother let me go up to her brood. The geese on the other hand were much more protective and cut me off when I tried to get closer.
I love cattails and find them especially interesting when they burst open to reveal the seeds inside. I usually find that they open up in the fall but I came across these on one of my walks more than a week ago.
A busy week and also very wet but I did manage a walk to the Marina where I came across this trio of teasels. If you have any trios you’d like to share with me just copy my link and paste it into your post. I’ll get a ping back and I’ll be sure to leave a comment. Have fun!
