They are Back!
I was out and about doing errands and took off to a nearby park since it was close to the mall where I had been shopping. Enough errands, it was a gorgeous day outside and the temperature was in the teens. My rubber boots were not in the car which prohibited me from going closer to the water. A man with a camera passed me and asked what I ‘d seen. I replied ” just Chickadees and Blue Jays”. He told me he’d seen about 60 Canada Geese in Hawrelak Park. Off I went.
They congregate in these large puddles where the snow has melted and there was a Pair of Mallards there which is exciting when it is the first sighting this year. I arrived in time to see a male fly in from the area of the pond which happens to be iced over, and a vicious fight ensued. When all was calm everyone went back to their eating and I sat down, watched and took photos.Now that’s a good day. I will show you what other species I saw in the next posts.
HOORAY !!!!!! 😀

thanks for your comments Joshi.Agree, ripples can be a strong part of the overall design.

Jane, all of your photos are gorgeous! I was particularly drawn to the colours in the water. That male Mallard was “hot”! If I were a duck, he would be the one I wanted! His green head shimmers in the sun.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful moments with all of us!
