Monday Walk: The Final Race

While I was taking my Sunday walk, I saw Ms. E was standing there by herself, she really didn’t want to be bothered.


But, another 1/2 mile from here, it was a little intensified. All the youngsters were excited about the final. 


C Jr. couldn’t wait… 


The minute C Jr. saw the Duck Jr. was taking off, he geared up and determined to beat Duck Jr.

See how his eye popped out.

Duck Jr. was ahead…


A few seconds later, C Jr. was about to pass Duck Jr. But, Duck Jr. didn’t make it easy for C Jr, and continued to race..


He got it!! C Jr. was like, I won!! I told ya, didn’t I?!


The turtle was also watching the race, “Oh, how I wish I could fly…”


The young Cormorant asked, “Mom, do you think I can win the race next year?”

“Of course! Don’t forget, practice, practice, and practice.” 🙂


Here, people respect wildlife. We don’t stir up their routines or trick them with food for taking fun photos. This is the place where birds can enjoy the freedom.

Taking this trail to the lake:


This week Jo is taking us for a boat tour. Beautiful scenes and boats along the shore, I wish I could spend a day there. You don’t want to miss it. Click HERE… 


Have a great week. Thank you for visiting! 🙂

      • Luck to a certain degree yes, but what I see in your images is YOU being totally free, totally in your zone, and totally having FUN! You shine on this one, Amy! That turtle takes the prize though. The expression on his face is unbelievabe and YOU captured it. Pat yourself on the back for being a kid again! I LOVE IT!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    • Thank you so much, Phil! You are the king of bird shooting (camera, of course)!
      I couldn’t believe I got that shot, I may never capture a pic like this again…


  4. Love your animated tale, it was perfect for the theater of events with the wildlife at the river – I’ll never look at the ducks and geese quite the same. Thanks for a great time – your photographs capture moments many would just walk by.
