Mellow Yellow Monday and My World Tuesday -Duck Visit

My grandson and I was playing in our backyard and heard this quack, quack, quack. I ran in the house for some bread and the camera just in case. Here you see the ducks have landed and coming in our yard. Not sure if they wanted to visit us or was just curious about the pink flamingo in our yard.

After they came into the backyard we were throwing them some bread but the one that look like he was leading the pack wouldn't eat any so the rest followed suit. I know the one really wanted to eat but he probably didn't want to get kicked out. You know how peer pressure can be.

After taking a quick look around I think they decided to take a walking tour over in the neighbors yard. Not sure how long they decided to walk. It's at least four miles to the park where the other ducks are and if I were them, I'd rather fly the distance.

It was really exciting for my six year old grandson. We see them at the park all the time but they never land in the backyard. I asked my grandson, wouldn't that have been cool if your pool was still up and they took a swim in it? We took his 10' x 6' blow up pool down the day before they decided to visit us. Oh well, maybe next time.

Well, now you have it, that's my world. Never a dull moment. To see more participants, click here: My World Tuesday

Thought I'd combine these two meme's, so to see more Mellow Yellow participants, click here: Mellow Yellow Monday As you can see the ducks feet are yellow.

Interesting that they wouldn't eat! Wonder what the thinking was -- well, if ducks think. Fun shots, fun post!

I love to watch ducks. When we lived on Galveston Island we fed the flock. It was too much fun! Thanks for the memories. I'm sure your grandson was delighted with the ducks visit.
