Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Ducks at the park~ABC Wednesday~020514



I always love to take my camera and go down to our civic center park.  I've written several stories here about the park.  BUT...now one has to put 25 cents into their "duck food" machine for duck food (new city ordinance).  NO MORE bread, crackers, or other "stuff" for these guys, NO SIREEeeeee!  No more bags of bread.  I suppose it IS for the benefit and health of the ducks, but I've seen many parents with kids feeding them bread. The end of an era, I suppose.  There ARE a LOT of mud hens at the park and a LOT of duck poop is on the sidewalks!  ABC Wednesday for February 5, 2014.  To see more entries for ABC Wednesday, please go to:    http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/

Ducks on the green lawn,
Ducks in the water,
ducks everywhere.

I understand the policy, but it is a little sad.

Lots of ducks around here, too, and I love to take my grandchildren to watch them.
