I'm not dinner

I stopped on the way home tonight at a small pond that I've thought about stopping at a hundred times to take pictures. I was hoping to capture the sunset before it faded, but with all the ice and snow I couldn't get in a great position to capture the fading colors.

So, I decided to drive to the other end of the pond and shoot a few pictures of the ducks and geese hanging out in the very cold water.

One duck was very interested in me and flew up to check me out...and then I realized...

...it had little to do with me and everything to do with the fact that people feed these guys a lot (I've seen them on my drive home) and so these guys thought I had food. Afraid I would be dinner, I high-tailed it back to my car and got out of there.

Just one of the many reasons, you shouldn't feed the ducks.

Happy Friday to everyone!
