'Ah the pity youth is wasted on the young.'

Y is ABC Wednesday's letter of the week-- impressing on me the youth or young among us. . .
a vigilant and petulant mother Wood Duck and her 12 (I counted them!) young ducklings


or young Wisconsin dairy calves, adorably inquisitive,

soon-to-be young turtles when this lady get finished laying her eggs. I caught her resting from the digging process--note the symmetry of the design on her shell as well as her footprints behind her. Amazing daylong--certainly exhausting--procedure.


And finally a young daughter of a mother running a race on the 4th of July (when she saw her mom pass by she had a sobbing meltdown because she wanted to go along!)
Many more Y photos are waiting for your visit to Mrs Nesbitt or to join in the fun!

Beautiful post! I love the ducklings and the calves, and the story with the last picture is sweet. Absolutely lovely.

You've done it again! Touched our hearts with tender photos (at least I think a photo can be tender) of the ever-appealing young.

You always have such great ABC posts! Lovely collection.
Also, thanks for passing on the sad news of Tasha Tudor's passing a couple weeks ago. I didn't know about that.

What a lovely combination of photos about the young ones. The calves have such sweet faces and the turtle (or is it tortoise?) is a beauty and the ducklings swimming right behind their mother are so vulnerable.

There is a theme of love running through these photos.
Awesome, inspiring and heart warming!

Thanks
