  25. Hi there - nice picture (and thinks for visiting / linking to WBW)

    Its interesting how the ducking beaks seem a "normal" size - I wonder when they get their shovel?

  33. Such a lovely and sweet capture of this little family, Anni--in easier times for them, I'm sure. Don't know much about wildlife--will they migrate early searching for water and food?
