Camera in hand, I took out for a brisk morning walk. The air was moist from the previous evening showers. Colors seemed to pop!
Down a brick path and around some Boston ferns I heard soft quacks coming from the bushes.
“Good morning Mama!” I startled her…she was NOT happy that I was near her lil darlings. I whispered, “be careful, don’t spoil them or they grow up to be dirty lil rats!” 🙂
Then I saw him… I had heard him squawk, but could not find him. Then Mr. P hopped down from a railing above me. (ok I said a wee bit of a swear word…sorry) He was not interested in posing at all. He turned and walked away. He did have a nice hind end veiw though.
On my way back to my car I could hear him squawk from a distance VERY loud… I turned and saw him in all his Glory… he had changed his mind on posing… (I guess guys can do that too, you know, change their minds!)
Now for your close up!
Some mornings, its difficult for me to focus through the tears.
Now go check out other Outdoor Wednesday celebrators!
Since January 1st 2010 -- I have been celebrating finding Beauty in our every day lives. Stay in the Day... be in the moment. Don't wait to live your life.
Stop and make a habit to find the Beauty and you will be amazed at how Beautiful your life is. Be thankful and remember:
"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." Dyer
