Wood Ducks and Water Lilies




Along the marshy edge of the lake.

Two families hide among the water lilies.

Dragonflies buzz by while Killdeer make their call, Kew Kew Kew.

A mother pretends to be injured while her children swim to safety among the water lilies.




But some of them didn’t hear the call for safety and lingered along the shore.

Mama calls for her babies to come out to the water lilies.

At last the family is together.

To float among the pink and white blossoms.

Blending in the colors of the sea of lilies.
