On Quiet Foot

To have the ducks stay in the pond I was careful not to flutter around too much.

 

To anyone who knows me, the above sentence and title would never be part of my story. 

All I can do is laugh at my own imagination.

so beautifully captured
Care MacADNski: I tried very hard to be quiet.
Such lovely shots of your ducks! So glad you were able to control your fluttering around!! smile

Lovely version of that song!!!!
Care MacADNski: They flew to the other end of the pond once, then floated back with curiosity. I love the pure acoustic feel and easy harmonies.
Joli couple. Sur la troisième photo, il y a un intrus.
Care MacADNski: Five males and one female live on the pond.

Natural scenes like this are great for the imagination.
Care MacADNski: It takes an imagination to think of me moving around quietly.

Two males and a female, normal for Mallards
Care MacADNski: We have five males and one female. For years it was three females but they were eaten by foxes. I found a dead male this day too, stuck on the spillway on a rock.

Even our little pond gets the occasional Mallard, but I think these are with you all the time, Mary, on your much larger one?
Care MacADNski: These stay here all the time but the population is changing with the pond filling in with reed so rapidly. Foxes can walk into the shallow water.
Ducks here regard human as a source of food
Care MacADNski: That is a very scary thought!
Particularly like the water in the second photo, Mary smile
Care MacADNski: Ha ha. I'm glad it is slanted just the right way.
It must be nice to have a big enough pond to attract the ducks to it.
Care MacADNski: It is getting smaller and smaller by the day, Brian. A pond was illegally dug years ago and silt ended up in my pond. Since then reeds have taken over.

It's lovely to have your own wildfowl attraction. I'm sure the ducks appreciate it.
