Down at the pond


I took my new camera out to the local pond to take some pictures of the waterfowl. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate, and after only a few minutes the rain started coming down hard, and I had no choice but to hide my camera under my coat and run back to the car. I got a few pictures though.

The attention-getters today was this lovely pair of Canucks.

And there were a lot of lovely red-winged blackbirds, calling to their girlfriends. Spring is in the air!

They seemed to be everywhere!

I'll go back on a nicer day and practice some more.
