Duck, Duck, Goose

In these difficult times, respite can be found in the natural world, which continues on without knowledge of the pandemic. We have been taking special pleasure in watching the ducklings in local ponds, who are so incredibly cute as they grow and learn.

And while we never get tired of looking at the ducklings, there are also incredibly cute gosling babies nearby. Note that even at this young age, they have the scary-looking serrated tongues which function like a set of teeth.
