Mr. Mallard was back today, and this time he brought the Mrs. with him. Maybe to celebrate our 29th anniversary? The photos are not quite as clear as I would like, probably because we changed the settings on my camera to fewer pixels after there were major problems downloading pix onto my laptop.
Speaking of birds, I forgot to mention that on Thursday, Mr. Peacock was hanging around out front. I had pulled into the driveway after my trip to Joann's for a quick stop to run inside and grab the wedding photo before heading over to Lynn's to print, and had an NPR driveway moment. I was still thinking about the segment when I shut the car door and headed across the porch, surprising Mr. Peacock - and me. So by the time I thought to grab my phone and snap a shot of him on the porch he had moved off. I was surprised to find him right back out there when I came out again just a little while later, so again did not get a photo. I enjoy having him strut his stuff here, though Tom and Alex find him noisy (which he is) and utterly annoying - and would much prefer to have him spend his time elsewhere.
