With such extreme heat and humidity this summer, walking or biking late in the afternoon or evening has been just about the only outdoor activity happening here. I enjoy going to our neighborhood ponds to feed and watch the ducks. Since it was already so late one evening, I lingered to watch the sunset. It was so beautiful I came back the next evening with my camera to hopefully capture some of the beauty here.
The ducks at the pond are always happy to have guests, if you bring treats! Some of the baby ducklings will come up out of the water to greet anyone. The little darlings are fearless and they do follow, so I had to be careful they were busy when I was ready to leave. They are so sweet, so fuzzy and they want to be held. Carefully I put them back in the pond and hope all the predators stay away until they are big enough to fend for themselves.
Being with the ducks brings to mind the wonderful tales of the "Beatrix Potter” books and the movie "Miss Potter". The song is from the movie soundtrack.
