    It has been raining off and on since yesterday and a little over an hour ago, it started coming down in dump trucks. The ducks were sleeping in the pool and then just swimming around in the rain. They finally hopped themselves out and played in the 'yard' since that pond was way bigger!

    Thank you so much for these pictures!
    Really brightened my day.

    I love to see a duck eyeball deep in some mud or water, they look so happy.

    WOW! That's a lot of rain! They sure look like they're having a good time though.

    Hope you don't get flooded out, not that your ducks would care. They are having a blast.

    What great pictures. I love them.
    I hope to happily get ducks this spring.
    Just two to lay eggs and eat slugs in my gardens, and I'll be satisfied.

    The only thing cuter than ducks playing in the mud is that grunty/snuffling sound they make while they do it [​IMG]

    Wifezilla's right. The sound they make when they are playing in the mud is adorable. Looks like your ducks were in heaven today!

    I love how the rain is beading up on their backs. Not having ducks, that's really neat!

    Kind of looks like my yard did this spring. It was so bad that my embden gander (who was scared to death of the pond) was 'bathing' in the front yard [​IMG]

    Hope you don't get washed away! Sure looks like way too much rain there [​IMG]
