Camera Critters 10/4



Camera Critters


It's been a while, but here is my camera critters for the week.

These were taken at a park in my town that has a little section called "Old McDonald's Farm". It's really a mini farm in the middle of the city so all the "city folk" can see all the farm animals. They have an aquatic section, which I could spend hours at, just watching the ducks swim around.




And here is the little baby duck...it was so cute, but I couldn't get a good picture of it.



Sadly, shortly after we were there this summer, someone broke into the aquatic center one night and killed many of the ducks there. I haven't been back since.

OMG who would break in and kill ducks? How sad is that :(

I used to have a duck in college. We had to give him to a farm, though, because he wouldn't acclimate well on his own. We named him "Woody" :)

Thanks for stopping by and for your congratulations! :) I hope to see you again soon! :)

That duckling is a darling...and who in their right mind would want to break in and kill animals of any kind.

Unbelievable! Some people have no respect or heart.

Your duck is a beautiful color!Baby ducks are the cutest baby animal.

How awful that someone should kill animals. We had a sadist in our country who used to kill horses stsanding in the meadow. He is now in prison.
Your photos are lovely.
Have a great weekend.

I just don't understand why people do those kind of things. It saddens me to hear that they do. Both the duck and duckling are very cute. Good shots of both of them.

They're so cute...!

It is one thing when a fox does that - and it has happened to us - but quite another when a person is to blame. Horrible.

Gretchen said...

Great shots! I'll never understand why people do the things they do.

Kelly said...

That's horrible and unbelievable! I can't believe anyone with any kind of heart could do that!

Misty Dawn said...

Are you kidding me? I can NOT believe someone would be so mean spirited to do such a thing!!! Just give me five minutes with that person! UGH

I love your pictures though - beautiful!

Beautiful photos of the duck and the little duckling is absolutely adorable! It saddened me to read about the break in - how can anyone be so cruel?
