It’s mid June and 8ºC (46ºF)! We’ve had a long period of unseasonably cold, and rainy weather. This sunny morning, the sudden light feels hard on the unaccustomed eyes.
Found this lovely Iris in the park yesterday. I love the colours of it. Got out of the car to count the ducklings. The skies opened up as soon as I stepped out, but I managed to get this. They were all sleeping on a rock, in one big, fuzzy heap, but the mother heard me coming, so she got them all out in the water.
They’re still 8! The other day, I thought she’d lost one but they’re difficult to count sometimes. It’s not common that the whole batch is intact — usually a few get lost … they become someone’s evening snack, I guess. Raccoon supper. I’ve only seen one fox in the park, and that was several years ago. They might be around, though. I’ve never got a real, good fox picture, except once and he was in the zoo so it doesn’t count the same way.
