duck family by the lake in Stresa

*Jumping ahead to Stresa for a moment*

The ducks in my previous post were ducks from Hawaii. Below are some photos I took of a cute duck family hanging out by the lake in Stresa. I was amazed at how close I was able to get, especially to the baby ducklings.

The ducklings are adorable!!!

They were sooooo cute and so tiny! I had to resist going up and touching them - because I knew it would not be a cool thing to do AND I figured either them mommy or daddy duck would probably attack me!


My Sony Vaio laptop died tonight and I just ordered a new one from the States - an HP. Am on my old one.

Those are so cute!


The duckling conversation is precious... I'm trying to imagine what they were saying!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, they are so cute and fluffy. I loved the one photo of them going away from the water and your comment. :) Wonderful photos!

Have a great evening!

Leslie, sorry to hear about your computer. I hope you didn't lose anything!

expatraveler, thanks for stopping by!

dana, probably something like "Who is this annoying person that keeps taking our photos?" :)

Kathy, I really should have taken some video. They were so young that they weren't too stable on their feet yet.

I can't believe how cute those little guys are. They really do look like they are talking. :)

Adorable!I am also amazed you were able to get that close! I love their conversations:)
