Great news, the “duck pond” is thawing out and there is wildlife there. The bad news is that there is precious little water in the pond. We will need some bountiful rains early this Spring to help restore the water level.
No lunch meetings yesterday so I grabbed a salad and went looking for some images. I always go by the pond first and to my delight there were a lot of geese and 4 swans at the pond.
The geese were closer to me so I captures some images of them first. The goose on the right kept ducking his head in and out of the water in rapid succession. He didn’t look like he was trying to eat, more like just enjoyed getting he head wet. 🙂
The swans proved to be more of a challenge. After I finished with the geese I noticed the swans were on the far side of the pond. The only way to get a lens on them was to drive around the pond and then come in on the North bound lane of the highway. By the time I had negotiated that and pulled up to where I would have a good vantage point the swans had moved to the other side. 🙂
So back around the route I had originally taken and this time they cooperated by parading back and forth in front of my lens. It’s like they said, “okay we’ve dinked with him enough.” 🙂
Beautiful day yesterday with plenty of sunshine and a mild 65 degrees. It sure feels like we’re headed for Spring but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for checking in. I hope you enjoy your Saturday. There are only 52 of them a year so make the best of it. Be careful.
