What a lovely sight -- I refer to the duck escorting her six little ducklings across Kildare Street on their way to St Stephen's Green, photographed in your paper last Friday morning.
I couldn't help but wonder what she was thinking as she protected her clutch and endeavoured to bring them to safety.
It's amazing the good nature and love ducks possess and show towards their young.
We humans could take a leaf out of their book.
