THE DUCKS ARE ON THE POND



Near the end of my park walk today 
Ron decided that he was going to 
the Public Gardens to capture
 a few pictures of the ducks on the pond.


Nothing at this end 
other than some very interesting moving reflections
which he told me was caused by
some ducks
just to the right.


Yes, the ducks were very much at home
cruising around 
looking for food and companionship,
if you know what I mean.


 Three males and one busy female
^music break^


Life is very tranquil most of the time
but occasionally excitement ensues
and off the ducks paddle.


This tranquil moment is for you
(but be assured, yesterday's video of ducks frantically
swimming after the lady was really good,
but Ron deleted the video by mistake)


Outside one of the gates 
after visiting the gardens
we saw a lone bicycle,
I'm sure s/he had a very serene visit,
lucky duck!!

    Oh the joys
    You reel them in
    And the cat will pluck them at his bin

    1. no touching one duck
      unless you can pluck
      but they are so speedy
      and way to greedy
      to let a kitty near

  5. Such a lovely video. So tranquil. And it's nice that daddy Ron includes your name as an assistant to making it in the closing credits. Pretty cool guy, huh?

    The photos are fantastic. I love all the autumn colours. Fall is such a great time to for photographs. I wish the colourful part of it lasted a lot longer.

    1. Yes the couple months of colour seem to come and go so quickly. That's why Ron takes so many pictures from so many angles just to have a shot that might be usable in the winter months.
      I was worried he might not include me in the credits because I had to sit in the car with a sidewalk and wrought iron fence between us. I have to work on the "no dog" policy.

  10. What a beautiful day Sophie! And you still have so many leaves the color of sunshine! I love to watch ducks and take pics of them too. They're lots of fun! You have a lovely park. It reminds me of the one behind our library here in Oregon where i like to walk sometimes. :) Have a wonderful rest of Sunday and a great Monday sweet Sophie.. and the same to Jim and Ron!
