Saturday Critters #474

 It has been so gray and gloomy here, spritzing almost every day.
I'm not sure I left the house after we went to the 
Fire and Frost Show 
at Peddler's Village on Monday.
I love a week like this though, quiet...doing lot's of home things, projects and organizing.
I have not been out to Lake of the Lilies for pictures, I know the pictures would be terrible, 
so I am going to share some pictures from the folders saved on my computer.

Bird Flu is still a problem and the article in the paper said it is primarily affecting the 
swans but that one duck has died.
I fear it is the beautiful Wood Duck that comes every winter as I have not seen him on previous visits.

I decided to share some pictures I have of him from previous years.


These are some of my favorites, I was able to get very close to him and he did not swim away.
They are wonderful memories.


I love this picture because it shows the pretty colors in the females hind feathers.



This is my favorite picture of all of the years from 2018, the first year I saw him at 
Lake of the Lilies
There is not always a female with him!

Sharing today's images with Eileen at 
for Saturday Critters

Those are really beautiful photos; worth enlarging some and framing; maybe for the bathroom or pool area? Linda in Kansas

I hope the Wood Duck is doing well, staying healthy.

I sure hope that wood duck has escaped the flu, so neat to see him over the years!
