I decided to drive down to the river yesterday hoping to see some eagles flying. I drove into A. Y. McDonald park and sure enough there was a bald eagle floating around the river just a few hundred feet away. By the time I got my camera set up and ready to photograph I couldn’t find him anywhere.
So I drove down to the river’s edge and found some Mallard ducks swimming near the boat ramp. Not wanting to go home with an empty card I photographed the female as she was swimming near the ramp.
Then this male duck started coming towards me (I was in my vehicle) and perhaps he thought I was going to throw some food to him. Many people do that. They drive down to the ramp and throw out bread crumbs and other food for the various wildlife that congregate there.
He finally came up close to my truck and looked at me like (Where’s the food?) Well I didn’t have anything with me so he was disappointed and went back to the water.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
