From truckstop to duckstop

Pictures by Paul Rickard
Ducking and diving.
Almost there!
All together still.
Water off their backs.

Luvaduck! What does a mum do when she and her chicks are ducks out of water? Duck for cover? No, it was all water off this duck’s back — she got her ducks in a row near the Truckstop in Stanley/Awapuni Road, marched them off the path, ducked and dived across the state highway and through the traffic.

No way would they be dead ducks — they waddled along the road edge and ducked under the fence to the Adventure Playground pond.

There the wee flock — no more than knee high to a duck — could safely be sitting ducks again.

And you guessed it . . . they took to it like ducks to water. All caught by our photographer Paul Rickard’s long lens.
