I'm late on Friday's Hunt today because I have been busy enjoying a visit from my parents on their way back from a holiday in Prince Edward Island. However, I'm taking a few minutes to get this written with some pictures I took on our walk in the Sackville Waterfowl Park this morning. It was such a lovely day for the walk and we saw lots of birds and other wildlife.
Our prompts from Eden Hills this week are: Starts with Y, Week's Favourite, and Splash.
Starts with Y
Today I have a series of "Y is for yellow" photographs from our waterfowl park walk. Here is a male mallard - he has a lovely yellow bill.
I also saw this dragonfly - I haven't had time to look up the species yet - but it has an interesting yellow triangle on its back. I hope that will make it easy to identify.
This beautiful male ring-necked duck has a lovely yellow eye.
Bonus - not from the waterfowl park, but from the pile of sawdust on our driveway yesterday afternoon...this lovely yellow swallowtail butterfly.
I think my favourite picture today is this mother duck with her family of little ones. They're probably considered "adolescents" now - they still have some down but they are quite big and growing fast.
There were lots of ducks splashing around in the water today but I didn't get any really good pictures of them splashing. This one is about the best of the bunch - they were far away. You can still see some water droplets spraying off the duck's wings.
We also saw lots of tiny fish in the water. Sometimes when the ducks came close, they would be disturbed and would make little splashes on the water's surface. I didn't get a picture of the splashing, but here are the little fish.
