These were just so cute couldn't help but try a few shots even though they were wayyyyyyyy far away for my reach. Lots of alligators lurking in The cliks pond.

Can't imagine they will make it.

Click Pond is the turn off just before the Viera wetlands. We did not know about this one last shoot.

It's a little disheartening to think of these little cuties' future. With all those huge gators in that pond I'm sure many won't make it. But that's nature, i guess.

Hi Kevin,

Goofin off at work are ya lolol

Yeah, don't think they will make it. The whisteling ducks at Viera Wetlands didn't either. The gator even ate one of the parents.

Never saw the other parent or the one baby that was left again.

I believe these are mallards.

Yes Leigh, sure is sad.

Wish she could have come closer. She was headed in
our direction when I think she spied the gator and headed back the other way.

Just so cute.......10 of them :>)))

I saw these guys and wondered the same thing - when do they become alligator food? I sure hope not. I'm mad that. When I saw them I didn't think the lighting would work, but it did for you.

Yes Gordon it is sad. But I doubt any of them will make it. Maybe not even the parent. Unless she stays on shore. But then they will get them thier also. Tough out there for duckies.

We can sure hope for the best for them though.

I did not think I could get the shot either, but had to try.

Was lucky this time. Sure not print material, but a memory none the less.

They are just so cute and she looked so proud of that family.

Thank you
