Whew! In the past eight days I've read four books and published four book reviews. I decided that I would take a break tonight and avoid reading anything that requires concentration or deliberation.
I took a walk in the park after work today and came across some wildlife. The top left photo is a female cardinal that I shot from about 50 yards away across a pond. The one next to her is a gray squirrel, gender unknown to me, that I shot from about 20 yards away. I saw a black squirrel earlier, but it got away before I could shoot it. The bottom photo is my favorite of the group: a mother duck with her ducklings. She was funny. She saw me coming and immediately gathered up the little ones and made them follow her across the pond. Am I really that scary looking?
