I met a family of ducks a few days ago. Mama Josie, Daddy Fernando and children Philippe, Ramon, Sylvester, Tomas, Juanita, Josie Jr., Fernando Jr., Fannie ClaireAndy and Sampson were eager to float and chat with me. The children enjoyed a nice warm swim and play with Josie and Fernando. After play, I was able to stay and watch just how a duck learns. Josie taught the little ones the basics of floating, while Fernando instructed the flock in Quack 101. The next time you encounter a duck family, stop and chat. They are usually very friendly.

You can tell them apart Ogee? 😉
Love those ducks!
Wow, now that’s a bunch! What do that call that…. a large family or a “gaggle of geese)?
According to this website: http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/about/faqs/animals/names.htm It’s a raft or a team of ducks.
Of course, they are family and in concert! Nice !!

No probs 🙂 I have a couple of nice duck photos but they’re so hard to photograph; they keep moving!! haha
Almost nothing can replicate the absolute beauty of nature.
(Mind you, a good photographer can capture it!)
