If I were a deer, I’d never leave Rockwood Park! Safe living, getting fed apples, lettuce and whatnot … people talk kindly to you … want to pat you on the nose 🙂
Didn’t have any great luck with those ducks — they were the most shy birds I’ve come across, except the bufflehead. Kept moving around the pond, in the deep snow, but as soon as I came within shooting distance, they just lifted, and moved to the other end.
Today, I’d put on the long lens [70-300mm], but then they were gone. Pfft!
Today, we had a real Spring day and it felt great! Li’l birds were chirping, the sun was warm.
Lo and behold … moved a little further down to the little cove there, Gerry spotted them first — two little ones and one big. I missed the big one, but the young ‘uns were peeking out of the hole, in the sunshine, looking wet and miserable in the fur. They appreciated the peanuts I handed them!
All over the place, little sparrows were chirping, I heard a grackle too. Gerry stopped to buy some clams from a guy in a truck, and there I saw a juvenile, bald eagle soaring.
This week’s theme in the WordPress photo challenge was «threshold». It didn’t immediately speak to me, so I decided to skip this week … unless I come up with something later.
Of all these beauties I saw today, this was perhaps the funniest 🙂
