The Look of Love

It’s been crazy busy here, and I’m sorry to say that in the next couple weeks my posts will dwindle a bit because of this.  Life happens sometimes!  I’ll try to keep current by either reblogging or posting a pic here and there, if I can manage to take one that is.

Yesterday I did manage to get a shot of some turkeys that were gobbling and standing on the side of the street near our house. I think these males are trying to attract a female.  Hmm…I hope they weren’t eying me!  Somehow the thought of chestnut stuffing came to mind.  😉

This Quacks Me Up

Thank goodness we’ve been getting rain in California.  Finally!   The rains have filled nearby creeks and made the hillsides and plants nice and green.   The other evening when I was taking closeups of flowers, which was only a few steps from our front door, I heard some quacking.  Moving closer to the edge of the creek, I saw this happy couple paddling around.  Thankfully, I had my 300mm lens on and fired off a couple shots.  By the time I moved a bit further down to get a closer look, they had gone.  I’m glad I got a peak into their environment.  Maybe someday soon there will be ducklings.  🙂
