Many thanks to Heidi for hosting this week's challenge. I was presented with something of a problem when I saw the theme. I have no children of my own, never had any. And I don't have any close relatives with children, either. Although I've done candid photos of people many times, I've never taken candid shots of children, it could be misinterpreted!!
I had decided that I couldn't take part this week.....but then it hit me!! Thinking laterally........there's no stipulation in the theme that it has to be only human children. So why not 'non-human' children?
So, I present you with ..........bird children!! LOL.
1) Nap Time. This Shelduck chick was starting to doze off even as he was paddling along in the water.
2) Dinner Time. A Moorhen feeds it's chick.
3) Play Time. Just like human children, ducklings like to play in the mud!!
