"Hail Mary, full of grace, blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus."  Whatever your religious persuasion, Mother's are revered all over the world.  As well they should be.  There is no one like your mother, no one understands, loves, is a confidant and friend, is always there for you even when you are not very lovable, as your Mom, 'Cause that's the way Mom's are, yeh, they are.  So please remember Mom today and send her loving thoughts if you are not near and hugs if you are and tell her she is loved and appreciated for all that she has done for you. 
   Here are some more of Natures Mama's that we just love having in our own back yard!
Canadian Geese goslings

Cardinal hatchlings just Yesterday!

Older Cardinal baby who was out of the nest and being fed by his Mama.
There is even one Canadian Goose family who have adopted a little homeless gosling that is smaller than their own.  At first the Mother and Father chased it away from their goslings as is natural.  But today they came with their 4 large babies and the little homeless one was right with them.  Nature is so amazing!  I will have to catch them on film perhaps tomorrow.

When do Cardinals change to their magnificent color? I know females are a rust color, but the males are so brilliant red. We have a lot of them here, as you know, but I've never witnessed a hatchling in a nest, not even seen a nest.

I love your photos of all the birds and especially the little, fluffy ducklings following mom right in a cute! We never did get any here. Mom got tired of sitting on her eggs. Don't know what happened there - maybe there was no male to fertilize the eggs because there sure were a lot of eggs - several times, but maybe the people kept chasing her off and she finally gave up. She needs to find a more secluded spot next time, not right at the side of the road where everyone disturbs them.

Happy Mother's Day to all creatures great and small!
