Camera Critters: Follow Me

I was walking through the park and this little guy waddled right up to me ...



... and then turned as if to say "Follow Me"

So I did

We got to the water's edge and he sat for a moment ...



And then took off across the lake ...

This just quacked me up .... I know that was just the worst tern of phrase but I promise to keep the rest down ...

I am sure he wanted to be blogged about very badly.

Hilary said...

He just wanted you to duck out for a bit but wouldn't let you touch him because he didn't want you to feel down. Fowl puns.. I know.. but Daryl started it. ;)

Ducks are so much fun! I guess when he decided you didn't have a goody for him, it was time to go for a swim!

Didn't you get into the lake ?

Sue said...

Looks like he wanted you to come along for a swim :)

Sue said...

Cool pictures. It's funny how ducks can do that sometime, they come close and then turn and swim away.

Hope you have a great day. :)
