Cuddling As The Clouds Roll By ...



"One touch of nature makes 
the whole world kin."
               ~ William Shakespeare
                                ~ 1564-1616

This female mallard brooding her eight ducklings after a dip in the pond is a sweet sight on a spring evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, as a white feather and reflections of clouds roll by in the water.

Female mallards brood their young regularly, particularly at night, as they easily chill. Brooding also keeps them safe.

Love Flows Sweetly ...



"Sweet spring full of sweet days and roses,
a box where sweets compacted lie."
                                             ~ George Herbert
                                                             ~ 1593-1633

Sweet mallard ducklings swim close to their mama
as a June sunset kisses them with light on the pond
at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Sweet Life ...


"We're living such a sweet life
Oh what a neat life, making our
dreams come true ..."
                         "Sweet Life"
                                         ~ Paul Davis
                                                       1978

Adorable mallard ducklings are 
just beginning their sweet life in
June at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

A Taste of Snow


This male mallard duck seems to taste some December snow with the seeds he ate
atop one of the small bridges at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
