Eighty-six: get your ducks in a row, originally uploaded by meganknight.
We went to the canal this afternoon, in the hopes of seeing baby ducks and coots, but all we found were drakes and male coots. I assume the females are all sitting on eggs, or at least I hope so.
In any case, these drakes gave us a fine example of synchronised swimming, with a nod to seventies decor as well. What more could you want?
