Wood Ducks again!

This is a little bit better photo...this time of the female.  Since the first time I saw this wood duck pair fly into the tree in the lot behind our house, i've seen them several times flying by.  Tonight we happened to be out watching some excitement going on down the street, when all of a sudden, there they were again.  Flew right over us and into the same tree.  I spotted the female and had Larry quick get my camera.  It was starting to get dark so still not very good shots but better than the last.  I never did see where the male went but the female eventually went into this hole in the tree......yea!  I'll have something to watch this summer.  :-)

Miu smelling the Magnolia's

Miu loves to go out in the mornings. Too bad we didn't have some good light but I thought it was cute anyway how she was smelling the flowers on the Magnolia tree.

I was just taking a look out the patio doors when I saw two "things" flying over the empty field across the street. As they got closer, I realized they were ducks...Ducks I say, in town, landing in a tree in my backyard!!!! Are you kidding me! Well, I just hoped that they stayed long enough for me to run and get my camera. One of them had flown off but I did manage to get a backlit shot of the other for proof. Still can't believe it. I told Larry we're gonna have to build a bigger pond. :-) Not sure if he was thrilled with that idea.
