About rain and ducks

Late last week we had a beautiful rain. It fell steadily for about 30 hours which it hasn’t done for some time. In fact, it was the best rain we’d had for over seven months. In that 30 hour period we had more rain than the total of the previous four months.

Of course the birds loved the rain too. I was a little surprised to see that some of them still wanted to come to the bird bath for a drink. At least I didn’t have to refill it after the downpour.

The next day I was driving home from an outing. I rounded a corner near our place and had to brake to avoid two Pacific Black Ducks casually waddling over the road. I didn’t have the camera with me, so you will have to be content with one I’d taken on another occasion.
