On my way of jogging on the premises of Hokkaido University in the morning, I found a pretty family of grey(spotbill) duck. The kids were almost blown away by the wind.
Some of them seemed to hesitate to jump into the water of the small creek on the premises of Hokkaido University.
Only one duck was left it still could not show its courage to follow the mom. Please do not mind. It fell down to the water after the long hesitation.
I was remembering the scene while I was soaking my body in the hot spring bath in Asarigawa Onsen, Otaru City.
