i love this photo. He’s very cute at that distance.
Thanks! He stayed very still for quite some time so very easy to grab the shot. PS, hope he has lots of brothers and sisters (although he’s the first I’ve seen this year.)
That’s quite a find! It’s hard to see the adults because they stay so well hidden, I’ve never seen a young one before.
We may have met his mom last year… https://whattheducks.com/2012/09/20/four-wings-and-a-prayer/ But, I agree, not sure how he even caught my eye because I was not about to open the trash can, I just happened to be walking by. Very happy to have the mantis family in the ‘hood, however!
They look cute when little. But, when they’re big … 🙂
You need to know that my daughter Aurora (6) LOVES your blog, and always asks me, “is the crazy duck lady’s new blog ready?” You’ve a very young fan!
I am *so* honored!!! Please thank Aurora & tell her I am proud to be crazy about ducks–and other critters! (PS, this is why we try and keep things family-friendly around here….)
