I have a few more images to share from my trip to Winnipeg on April 6,2012.
Over the years I have gotten so many pictures of gulls,but I am always willing to take more,when the opportunity presents itself.
This one did a quick touch and go as he grabbed a morsel of free food out of the water.They are so quick when they do this,that often I pressed the shutter button too late.
Something tells me that Mr.Mallard was not happy to have the gull this close.
I love those wings spread out over the mallard in a protecting fashion.
Of course no trip to St.Vital Park would be complete without at least one Wood Duck picture.OK,so I took more than one,but I will only show you this one.
The colour of the water and that of the female are almost identical.
I like how she blended into the picture.
I also spent a short amount of time at Ft. Whyte Nature Center.
I was obviously not the only one who wanted to walk the trails.
These two waddled along as if they were enjoying the sights and the weather.
Here is one more shot of the catkins in bloom.I love how they look against that blue sky.For some reason,seeing this makes my heart sing.
Thought for today
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.
