Today at sundown hunting season
will officially be over, the ducks
and I are very happy. I'm so
happy I'm almost doing the
"happy dance". I don't know
what the ducks are doing, oh
yes I do...they're running,
well I guess not running...but
they're definitely hiding. It's
not that I don't like hunters..
hunt all you want, I just don't
want to watch. I don't like to
hear your guns at the (barely)
crack of dawn.
The first photo here is the field I see
when I look out my front window,
I'm looking east. This was a corn
field, ducks love corn fields...I love
ducks. I love it when they fly over
me when I'm working outside in
the fall, quacking away. I love to watch
them when they fly in formation....
that is just so dang cool....oh wait...
it's geese that fly in formaiton.
I like geese a lot too. Just so ya know.
I love looking at these mountains in
the distance almost as much as I like
the aforementioned birds...maybe more.
The next photo here is "out back". This
would be looking to the west. This is our
field, the renter planted it in corn...ducks
love corn fields...did I happen to mention
how much I love ducks? They have the
most beautiful coloring, well...the boys do,
the girls are kind of plain...but it's a pretty
kind of plain. That is our old hay wagon in
the picture. I thought it would make the
photo of the corn field look so much cooler,
it does...doncha think? It gives it some
interest, some perspective...so much better
than just looking at a muddy snowy corn
This last photo is of a duck hiding in my
front yard at the edge of the stream ...okay,
most folks call it a ditch...but it has some
really big fish in it to be called a lowly ditch.
Hide Mr. Duck! It's only a few
more hours until sundown!
