It’s definitely Spring in Texas. And from what I hear, it’s beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Spring at home too! Finally. Can I just tell y’all that winter was rough? I know why I spent the winter in Texas last year! While I’m here, I’m getting to ride with friends and just generally hang out- which is super nice. Wednesday I had been out riding with my friends and when I arrived back at my parent’s house, my sister showed up. We were chatting and she turns to me and says, “um, look what is in the pool?!” I looked and what do you expect that I saw? You got it. A Mallard drake and his hen, just happily swimming away! Like the great photographer that I am, I had my camera with me (I can hear the snickering now- you didn’t carry it ALL winter, but you have it now? It’s warmer now. And that’s all I have to say about that!).
I snuck over to my pickup, swapped to a 300mm lens got my settings like I wanted them and snapped a few photos. Here’s the results! As per usual, just click one photo, and scroll through using the arrows on each photo.
And as I finished writing this post, the ducks arrived back to the pool. Isn’t Spring just grand?
Happy Friday and Happy Trails!
