When its dark and I walk past that spot in the dead of winter I feel like I’m all alone.  Everything is so quiet and still  and then I hear it.  A “quack, quack, quack, quack” coming from somewhere near in that darkness.   It makes me smile.  I guess they know I’m there… and now I’ve captured them to show you.  2009-january-006

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you see them all down below the banks in the woods?  There are so many ducks down there in the BLUE water …lots of them and its winter!    They are a bit hard to see in the picture but you can tell their little necks and heads I’m sure.  I was standing up on a snow bank almost knee deep in snow to take this picture and some of them squak quacked and moved to the left of the picture where we can’t see them.  Even though its very freezing cold around here the water in that area doesn’t freeze over because it has movement and the ducks hang out there swimming.  They do the same in the summer too.  How come they don’t freeze their little footies I wonder?  

Thats my BLUE Monday post.   I hope whether you have the cold of the snow or the warmth of the sand that  you are having a lovely day…. Judi xoxo

NOT a Good Day For Ducks

Too Miserable for Even Ducks

You know how when its raining and and miserable out there we say its a good day for ducks?  Well…not our neighbourhood ducks.   As I was getting into the elevator to go home tonight I turned around to see 2 male mallard ducks huddled at the front door.  They looked to be getting out of the rain and initially were both right at the door as if waiting to get in.  These guys are pals and usually there are 3 of them.  We have a creek that runs at the sides of the building and across the road.  They seem to live here most of the winter because there have been evenings when I’ve heard them as I walk past the creek.  It has been dark and I think I’m alone until I hear this announcement of “quack quack”… always makes me chuckle.  They’re just saying hello…keep warm…
