This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday features some ducks that are regular visitors to our yard most of the year. They tend to hang out either in our neighbor’s front yard that has a big section of wetland that is underwater most of the year (right now it is pretty dry) or in our backyard near the river.

I love knowing that they consider this home. Even in the winter, early in the morning after a snow fall and all the world seems hushed and quiet, you can hear the ducks quacking out on the river. They don’t even care all that much when the dogs are in the river swimming. They just swim up river a bit out of their way.

I grew up on a small farm in Massachusetts and we used to have ducks and I loved them. These guys remind me of our ducks of long ago.

This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday is just a quick photo I took of some Mallard ducks enjoying some springtime sun (finally!!) in the little pond in my neighbor’s yard. The last couple of days when I have come home around midday these guys are just hanging out catching some rays.

My neighbor and I were speculating about the story might be of these two males. She seemed to think they were two guys without girls this springtime and just hanging out feeling sorry for themselves. I thought maybe they were goofing off while their ladies were somewhere nearby sitting on some eggs.

We seem to have a couple of pairs of ducks that hang around our yards all year round so I suspect my ‘story’ is closer to the truth. Either way seeing them enjoying the warm afternoon sun, sort of dosing on the water put a smile on my face as I drove past them, hence there appearance for Fav Foto Friday.
