This was so cute. I was over to my friend Norma's house on Sunday and she showed me all of the eggs that Mr. and Mrs. Mom and Dad Duck had contributed to society. She showed me all of the eggs which were about 25 or 30 of them - perhaps more. Both ducks were sitting on all of them to keep them warm. Yesterday I was over there and Norma lifted up the lid and there were a few brand new little fluffs of life scurrying around under their parents.
Today I went over to get a picture. Norma wasn't there so I was opening the lid that opens from the front and trying to get a camera close enough in to click the shutter. I was nearly standing on my head. Think body sprawled over box, head upside down trying to look into a small slot without bothering Mom and Dad. The babies were nearly doubled in size compared to yesterday just coming out of the egg shell.
Picture is a little blurry, but you try taking a picture upside down without bothering Mom and Dad Duck.
Seriously. Nature is such a miracle.

I didn't take this, but I wish I had done so. It's the early morning light at Organ Pipe Cactus Monument down by Tucson.
Guess I better put the credit down. It was on one of the news channel sites on FB.
