The Not So Wild Duck Chase
I looked out the kitchen window this morning and saw this trio in my garden, madly nibbling away at anything green they could find. As soon as I stepped outside with my camera they were off and running. The jig was up.
They knew they were in trouble and headed straight back to the duck pen.
A quick stop for a nibble on the greenery before trying to fly back into the pen. They are not exactly aerodynamic – they barely get two feet off the ground – so off and running they went again.
One down, two to go.
Two down, one to go. And Quackers led Hannah on a merry chase. Around the duck pen.
Over to the asparagus patch with the Colonel and the Girls looking on in curiosity.
All the while staying just a few steps in front of Hannah.
Nabbed, at last! I suppose I could have helped, but then I would have had to put down the camera.
Hannah and Quackers who I’m sure was already plotting the next great escape.
