milton burl

It's been overcast and cooler than usual with a constant drizzle. The summer seems to have ended so abruptly. I carry my camera everywhere I go, but can't seem to get the right light for anything. This duck doesn't seem to mind it at all, though.

They say we'll have more normal (warmer) temps next week, and some sun... we'll see.

By popular demand (2 people--I'm easy) here is the picture of my closely cropped scalping.

But if three or four cross your path Mr. Dave... waddle you have then?

That's what they're forecasting, Leeloo's Mum. I hope they're right.

Much too busy to be down, Mommantor. And definitely not downe. (I looked it up.)

Weatherman says it'll clear up tomorrow, Imac. I hope to trim the hedges this weekend.

Charming ducks! Honestly, I could sit and watch such as these... floating across peaceful water... for a long, long time.

Sounds like the perfect weather for ducks. They are not complaining are they? :)

The lighting has been terrible here too. When the sun comes out I have to drop everything and grab my camera!

When I worked out in the street with a utility crew, we could always tell where the underground DUCKs were by the QUACKS in the road.... groan!

LL, I get the impression that you are more than an observer of peace, but that you are genuinely a peace-maker. Thanks for visiting.

All I know nAncY, is that If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck.

These ducks had nothing to complain about, Joan. I saw a few people hand-feeding them. I didn't feed them a thing, but sat close, in the wet grass, trying to snap a good picture.

I just came back from visiting your blog, EG. I see that you were able to go out after all and catch some nice pics of that autumn creek and blue heron.

Shammy... :-O

Craver: It has been hard on the photographer to get the great shots.
