Mall ducks.

Such strange things happened to me today, but the press is still on for the week, forcing me to defer telling my day's best story until tomorrow. As a placeholder, I offer you ducks. Mall ducks. A mall duck with ducklings, to be more accurate. One advantage of a weird outdoor "town centre" mall is that it makes mall ducklings possible.

And seriously? I don't think that the full picture does justice to how preternaturally cute ducklings are. It's ridiculous: I see ducklings, and I want to take care of them. And so, a detail of that shot--click to see it bigger.
