Monday, April 2nd......
The Monday after Easter does look like this. The sun keeps coming up into the horizon more to the left. The tree is now on the other side of the sun. The air stream from a jet really is reflecting light from the sun.
As I returned to our new place, I stopped at the highway pond to see what was going on. This is the same pond that I had seen trumpeter swans. I found these two white ones rushing to get away from me. I don’t do well at identifying ducks. The almost looked like domesticated white ducks but this photo doesn’t help me to know an identity. The were bothered by me being on the lake edge so they swam to the other side and one got out of the water going into the brush.
I know people from the northern stated can quickly identify these. I don’t think the photo is clear enough for me to even look it up on the computer. Smaller ducks seem to migrate through here. I do think that they scatter out in pairs to farm ponds in the area but they are not seen so much regularly. As a kid I would hear people say that they were mud ducks. I think they really didn’t know their names.
I leave you here on Monday wishing you to have a good day and maybe even a very good week. Thanks for stopping by today.
