Sunday interlude: Ducks in the park
This afternoon, my girls came into the house all excited, asking for the camera. I went out with them to see what was going on. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Mallard were flying to or from the river near our house when it started to rain, and they decided to make an emergency landing in the little area park across the street. We've had jackrabbits, falcons, coyotes and the odd deer in our park, but the Mallards usually give it a pass for the river three blocks from here. We enjoyed their visit, and the way they waddled around. For their part, they seemed a little annoyed at being tailed by the papparazzi!
