There are two duck families that hang around our campground pond. They go up and down the stream that feeds the pond, grazing and eating as they go.
However, since the stream goes under the campground road, the ducks have to cross the road to get to . . . (you know the rest).
And it’s a busy road.
So as I was watching the ducks one day . . . 5 chicks starting crossing, but there were 2 chicks left, so mom went back . . .
I stopped filming because there was a Ford F250 at my back, and I gestured to him to stop.
The ducks (mom + all 7 chicks) made it across ok, and I filmed them downstream . . .
