A lot of times I receive appreciation for the "cute" photos. These photos are good just because you can't help but smile when you look at them. The Internet is filled with these overpopulated "cute" images from cats, kids and cuddly things. The picture we presented for our Mother's Day news featured a mother duck and her ducklings. It has cute pretty much written all over it.
