Hunting-free so they are safe

Till the long flight home

  1. Ha! Fat ducks. Love it! Our ducks and geese are gone now. The woods and lakes are quiet. Time for winter to begin.
    We’ve been tricked by all this warm weather. Last night we had a tiny bit of snow that turned to ice on the roads. My daughter had her first car accident when she slid down the mountain road and crashed into a guard rail. So scary! She’s fine. But winter is coming. No more doubt.

      Yes, it’s about ducks whose feathers are puffed up to keep warm and not about those whose winter coats are getting tighter. 🙂
      Good to hear your daughter was not hurt. I remember I had a number of similar accidents when I was there. I was always OK, but I can imagine how she felt when she had it.
      Winter is coming here too. A lot milder here, but it’s still winter. 🙂

    So, the danger is out there… Beautiful again, AshiAkira 🙂

  3. Love the contrast of domestic image – fat duck and wild reality – the long flight.

      Thank you. Yes, they seem to be relaxing in the moat in the highest land price area of the city now, but I’d imagine the migration journey facing them will be a rough one. 🙂
