OK. I know this isn't the best photograph but all I had immediately on hand was my iPhone.
Anyway, this is part of the reason we love living where we do.
Was out yesterday on our front porch and across the street were a male and female Mallard duck just strolling around our neighbour's yard. The female even took a little expedition up the stairs but decided there were slim pickings on the porch.
We're only a few hundred metres from the lake so I guess this isn't too unusual. It is though refreshing as hell to live in a community where our winged friends feel free to explore.
Now, if I could just find a way to rid the waterfront of our Canada Geese this would be close to Walden Pond!
