Yesterday it rained so I didn't have to work. So I had a free day with anything I wanted to do. What did I chose? I decided to go to the park and see if I could photograph some baby ducks that I saw there the other day. I had a couple of pieces of stale bread that I decided to take with me.It took me a minute to find them and when I did, I discovered she was sitting on them. See those little yellow fluff-balls? Can you say, oh my goodness?!?!? Momma didn't seem to be in any hurry about moving so I was glad I had brought the bread. After I threw her a couple of pieces those golden fleeces were revealed.Can you see the one sticking out it's little flipper? Is that not the cutest!!?!?!?It's okay, say it with me. Oh my goodness!!! Can I tell you how bad I wanted to pick up one of these little fuzz balls? I had one of these when I was a little girl. They are undoubtedly the softest little creatures.Momma was real nice to let me take pictures. She didn't seem annoyed or anything.This little one was watching momma the whole time. Is this not sweet? Who doesn't love baby ducks? After a few minutes I decided to leave them be and walked on around the pond til I found these guys.
These two weren't as shy as momma and the babies. I think they saw I had bread. The one with the red all over his face wasn't shy at all. I decided to see if he would take bread from my hand. He had no problem doing that. He did it really fast and I could tell his bill was so strong. I thought how bad that would hurt if he had gotten my fingers.Up close and personal. See the end of his bill. Yowsers! I bet that would hurt.As I was leaving the park I couldn't help but notice the azaleas in bloom. And this vine was growing on an arbor. Don't know what it is but I thought it was pretty.After I left the park I decided to whip it into Quiznos to pick up some lunch. I thought about going back to the park to eat but decided to drive out to the reservoir. As you can see it was a very gray day, but for me it was beautiful.
And bye the way if you ever eat at Quiznos try their broccoli/cheese soup. It was delish!
