Friday, we had some unexpected visitors on the pond.
Three drake and two hen mallard ducks!
Princess Sheba noticed them first.
She sprang from her spot on my lap, looking out the front window of the house and continued on point until I acknowledged what she was looking at.
They meandered from one side of the pond to the other.
Scavenging the banks for food.
I think this is the cutest photo of all those taken!
All five little butts popped out of the water as they dove for food!
They were so fun to watch through the camera lens!
They didn't even mind the dogs being close by.
Saturday morning the pond was frozen over.
There was a lonely drake just setting in the middle of the pond.
Sunday morning, there had been more snowfall throughout the night and into the morning.
All the ducks had flown away.
We hope they come back to visit again soon.
