Our fowl weather friends

Posted by Nanc

Hey! The ducks came back this morning, and we were able to get some better pictures of them. W00t!

I don’t know how long they were hanging out there, and if they were waiting for breakfast to be served or what. The girlie duck had climbed out of the icy cold pool and must’ve been sunning (ha!) herself on the deck, but boy duck was still swimming in circles around the pool. (Yet he stayed pretty close to girl duck.)

They stayed put until Matt had to go to work. It wasn’t the garage door opening, but Jimmi (our Honda Civic Hybrid) pulling out that sent them off. And I was waiting with the camera! (Who knew that girl ducks have a pretty, purple-ish stripe under their wing… ‘cept naturalist, I guess.)

I probably won’t take any more photos if they come around again, but I will let y’all know. Because really, it tickles me — and that’s what counts, right?

And no, I’m not going to apologize for the pun.
