Baby Face

Beginning later today, I'll be away from my computer for about a week as we head back up to Frank's family cottage. I have scheduled a few posts for while I'm away and I hope to catch up with everyone upon my return.


Baby Face,

Anita said...

Seeing your photos make me realize how much I've missed them lately.

Beautiful animals.

My friends and I had the joy of watching a bird mom and dad (can't remember the species) protect their just-born babes on the horseback riding ring. We had to get off our horses for fear of hurting them. The daddy bird actually led them to an adjacent pasture. Amazing how they walked the same day they were born-within hours.

Boy did we wish we had a camera!

EnJoy your getaway!

Barb said...

Too funny! Especially that final bow! Cute baby faces, too. Have a good vacation, Hilary.

Grayquill said...

How did you ever get that shot with the three ducks - did you photo shop it? Sorry, I know you didn't

Grayquill said...

I figured it out - that little mutt of a dog, is it Frank's or is it yours? killed the three ducks and Frank hung a fishing weight to there heads and then posed the picture. Sorrry, I know, I know, that was GQ being bad again.

Indrani said...

Great series of shots and such a perfect timing in the last shot. :)

ladyfi said...

So adorable! Enjoy your time at the cabin.

Leah J. Utas said...

Those are adorable. Love the ending.

Love baby animals photos Hilary and yours are just wonderful. Am seeing some little baby faces in my sedum this week where house wrens have made a nest... and they're hatching.

Enjoy your mini-vakay!

Nancy said...

Your photos are simply stunning. The first one is definitely frame quality. I love all the babies.
