It was right under my nose.....
I was in town with an hour to kill, so I pulled out my camera and visited the local duck pond. You know the place. It's the duck pond in your hometown that you drive by twice a week. I was surprised by the activity during the middle of the day. Parents with kids, bags of bread crusts, and anxious ducks just waiting to be fed. I sat on a bench and just took it all in. There were many things I hadn’t seen before. The Mallard type duck with the crazy hair-do fascinated me. I was able to see California Gulls hunt for food up-close and American Coots run on the water. I must admit, when the Swan Goose was mating, I was concerned there would be a drowning!  My favorite duck of the day was the Ruddy Duck. He is just too cute! After reading this, I hope that you too will find time to visit the local duck pond in your hometown and see what awaits you.
