Look how fast #3 swam to catch up! And then it got cuter. I snuck upstream to get an angle for some photographs. Mom didn't know that I was there until I moved. Then, she sounded the alarm call and the ducklings hustled close and jumped onto her back for safety.
I don't know where #3 was. Only 2 jumped on her back. I left them alone to continue their upbringing.
We did see a fish this weekend when we went to the Austin Dam. This is a Sucker Fish that was swimming around a clear pool of water below the dam ruins.
Colorful birds aren't the only attraction on our hikes. Jill spotted this Red Eft along the logging road.
