Sunny Late Winter Morning



Sitting quietly beside a small stream on a beautiful morning is its own reward.

Having a mallard hen take a nap within view is an unexpected bonus...





A mourning dove basks in the morning sunshine...



The arrival of wood ducks to our small creeks is a highlight of the season...



I watched as this pair searched for just the right nest location...





Wood ducks are among the most beautiful of waterfowl, and among the most skittish...


As I was ending my stream-side vigil, I noticed a fox that was stalking a robin...


Hesitating may have cost the fox it's breakfast...



Thanks for sharing my morning, be well, and come back soon.
