Ducks Water and Ice
Yesterday was the first outdoor soccer practice for the kid. The field is a little wet on the edges, but other then that it is pretty good.
Finally getting a start to summer. The boys of summer kick'n a ball.
While the kid was ran, jumped and kicked the dog and I went for a walk. There is a great trail south of Northern College along the lake. One part we had to turn around since it was underwater.
A beaver has been very busy along the side of the lake as many downed trees litter the trail.
A pair of ducks, male and female mallards, flew from the shore into the lake. Along the lake edge is water, out in the lake only gaps in the ice have water. The ducks are at home between the sheets of ice.
This picture was taken with my camera-binoculars. A 3mp digital camera attached to a pair of binoculars. What you see in the binoculars is what you get a picture of. A light-weight answer to having to lug around a camera and a pair of binoculars.
I still have the pocket digital camera with me, it comes with me everywhere. I have had the digital bino-camera for a couple of years now and I find it pretty good.
i will put up more pictures from it this summer.
