The remains of the day...May 5, 2019

Thought I would show a few more pics from our drive on May 5...


I barely managed a capture of this Wood Duck...he and his mate were in some backwaters beside the rode we were on and quickly skidaddled away when I paused to snap a pic.  This is the first time I have ever been sure I was seeing a Wood Duck.


This is another barn I have shown numerous times before.  I photograph every time I pass it.


This is just a small portion of a huge orchard north of us.  Probably not huge by some standards.  I have always hoped to catch it in full bloom but never have.  They had taken out a lot of trees in this one section since the last time I was through there.

Seeing a Wood Duck is so special! I saw one for the first time last year. Got bad pictures, but at least I saw him!

No chance to see Wood Duck here because we don't have them here.

I have seen wood ducks here, but they are not common. I thought an alligator was about to munch that wood duck. Now THAT would certainly surprise some folks in your neck of the woods!

I've never seen a wood duck around here. You live in a really pretty area. I like the barn and would probably take a picture of it every time too. Some things are just meant to be photographed over and over.

The wood duck is just so handsome. I also love the barn and what a pretty orchard. The grape vineyard behind us once was an apple orchard.
