-Wild ducks enjoying the rain and our pond.
We enjoyed some wet weather over the long weekend, putting some much-needed water into our tanks and topping up the garden pond. The garden is greening up and we may see a new episode of Cilla's Garden sometime in the coming week. We often get wild ducks visiting our pond but during the showers these guys really seemed to be having a good time so I grabbed the camera and snapped a couple of shots. It's hard to photograph wild animals with a consumer digital camera. Our Coolpix only has a 3x zoom, but it takes a 7.1 mega-pixel shot so it still captures plenty of detail. These ducks saw me coming and one got out before I got close enough to take the picture.
