Sunrise, sunset

I tried to find some music for this post. I really did. I couldn't find just the right mix of instruments and voices. The closest I came was the original version with Topol singing . . .

 . . . when did she get to be a beauty? When did he grow to be so tall?  Wasn't it yesterday when they were small? . . .

Well, it was bittersweet, because we have become so attached to this little guys and gals:

But this is what they looked like yesterday, when we released them at the lake where they were born:

Some difference, ay?

The larger duck (with the arrow pointing to him) is actually their papa.He hadn't seen them since their mama disappeared and they were only a few days old . . .

They seemed to adjust pretty well to being Grown Ducks, and grazed happily on grass seeds and lake goodies.

It was a little sad to leave them behind, but we know that they are going to be very happy here! (And we'll be back to visit soon!)
