I wasn’t expecting to do a third Thematic Photographic, but this one literally showed up at my doorstep.
I saw a duck and her ducklings, sitting in the driveway as I was heading out to Home Depot.
So I stopped to get some pictures.
Things were going fine, got some good pictures.
They let me get pretty close.
And then Denny decided to crash the party.
Now I know cats are cats. Mine are not declawed and I let them go in and out through their cat door at will. I don’t even give them trouble when they come in with a “present” for me. But the couple of times they brought in unharmed birds I did get it away from them and (eventually) get it out the door, and I’m certainly not going to let them hunt right in front of me.
So I brought Alan back into the house and encouraged the ducks to leave.
I had to get right on top of them to get them going.
But they finally headed to the end of the driveway,
and down the sidewalk.
Past the neighbor’s house and
into the tall grass in the parking strip.
Bye, bye birdies.
