The Ducklings are all a-Twitter.
We don’t have ducks on our lake, but we do have geese. When they go swimming, one of the adult (I will presume mom – I really can’t tell and since I am not a goose, it doesn’t matter) is in front, the goslings are in the middle and poppa follows in the rear – all in a tight little straight line flotilla.
Our lake is ideally suited for geese. About half of it is half a goose plus a goose neck deep. So all they have to do is tilt themselves downward so their but is in the air when they want to eat something from the muddy bottom.
One day, mom got as sudden urge for a snack and she stopped abruptly and went tail up in the water. This resulted in a three-gosling collision as her offspring piled into her rear end. She came up rather indignantly and honked at them.
Next thing you know, you end up falling in a storm drain and those huge hairless apes have to lift you out.
They already have the face for a perfectly humorous selfie.
“That, and the fact that you’ll probably drop it in the water.”
This quacks me up! Good for her!

Smartphones should be banned. Mind-numbing, and dangerous.
It’s enough to make your head swim.
You can’t keep your ducks in a roll with those things.
Domestic ducks, not wild.
Smartphone zombie ducks. Natural selection by swim test is next, then they’re processed into duck tape.
The wonder of miniaturization.
