The Ducks of Spring

Okay, by popular request: DuckDuck and Her Swain:

Ducks Saturday enhanced

Good photo of the Duck Princess. The drake is much handsomer than he appears here. His head is quite a bright bluish green and the flash on his wing is totally crazy blue.

It’s really hard to catch them on a camera. They don’t seem to appreciate being peered at — and they spot you even when you’re peeking out a window at them. They don’t spook as easily as, say, a sparrow, but they’re not as bold as a mockingbird or a hummer. But cameras are definitely not their favorite company. 😀

Another sign of spring: the iris under the olive tree are blooming.
