We had a visitor this morning: one lone duck swimming in one of our ponds without any fish (it's the one beside the old historical shed). I crept up very quietly, trying to take a picture, but every time I cam a little closer he would dive head first into the water and pop up on the other side of the pond. We played this game for several minutes. This is a close as I was able to get to him. I went into the house to get some bread and fed it to him, but he kept his distance while I was there. Maybe he'll feed when he's alone. We're hoping he becomes a permanent resident of the pond ... ane move his whole family in, too. We'd like that! For now, we're calling him Derek. It could just as easily be Denise, but we can't tell, so Derek it is. I don't know why, but seeing this little duck makes me giddy. I'm so happy.
