  58. Hi Eileen, I sure enjoyed the photos. A few days ago I had a group of birds fly over my place ... sort of like your Mallards photo ... but I didn't have my camera ready and they were gone too fast. I would love to get a photo like your Mallards. Thanks for sharing. Hope you've had a happy weekend and wishing you a fine week ahead.

    ReplyDelete

  60. Hi Eileen! Its been too long - As you know life has kept me away from blogging, and I'm making a goal and hoping I can keep caught up on reading blogs like yours who I really miss.

    I enjoyed your photos from Florida, and the ones from this post too. How fun to see the mallards and turtles are always good for a grin.

    I hope you are well, and "having fun" even if our weather isn't the best.
