Ducks and Eagle

 We went to the park for a little while yesterday.  We fed the ducks.  We didn't stay long, since we had forgotten a change of clothes for the smallest one.  I got a few pictures, but not as many as I had hoped.

 This darling daughter of mine loves feeding the ducks.

And geese...

At one point ALL of the ducks and geese (hundreds as far as I could tell) suddenly, and without warning, decided to jump up and fly away.  That is no small amount of noise and it slightly startled Chloe.  We looked around to see if a dog or running child had startled all the ducks and geese, but saw no one.  Then we glanced skyward and this fellow came swooping by.  I didn't have my zoom lens, but as it turns out, really didn't need it since he was really very close.

We recently got a sleep by numbers bed and replaced our old TV that was by modern standards a dinosaur.  It is nice to get some nice things.

It's amazing how ducks and geese all know suddenly that they are in serious danger.
Us mere human beings can be in a room full of people, and we are totally unaware of danger until someone pulls the trigger, then we all take flight.
