My husband and I were driving down a dirt road when we spotted a family of killdeer hanging around a huge puddle in the middle of the road.
Mama wouldn't let me near her baby so this is a severely cropped photo.
Mama looking after baby
Mama sent Baby into the nearby tall grass to hide. They called to each other constantly. After a short while Mama checked to make sure Baby was really okay.
Meanwhile Daddy pretended he was hurt to divert my attention. I've seen this before so knew it was a trick. And, yes, I did see him walk away when he realized I was leaving the scene.
