10/10/09 - Muscovy Duck
When I asked Joey how he wanted to spend his birthday, he said he wanted to go to Lake Wheeler Park and feed the ducks and that he wanted to go to Build a Bear. You may remember Lake Wheeler is where he got bit by the fire ants. I'd been wanting to go back, really, it's a favorite spot of ours, but I put him in knee high Spiderman boots while we were out of the car there!
We often see plain white ducks, muscovy ducks, and mallards at this spot plus a few others depending on the season. Joey and I are both fond of the muscovy ducks. To me, he's so darn ugly he's just absolutely cute. Also, much nicer than some of the geese and other ducks too. He wants his cracker, but he doesn't try to take your finger off!
As you can see, it was cloudy while we were there:-( Still, I liked this majestic looking shot of him. I also got a very nice close-up of the female and baby duck pictures too. It was very hard to pick which to post.
More pumpkins could be in my and maybe your future if we make it to another fall type event today. Cloud and drizzle are forecast:-( Thanks for the comments on the multicolored pumpkin shot from yesterday.
