Sun, Shadow, Snow II

February 24, 2013

It was a sunny, Sunday afternoon after the snow this past week, and I could not pass up a walk around Lake Katherine.  Plenty of people were out walking their dogs and I met another lady taking pictures.  Everyone was friendly.

Sun and shadows come through pine grove at Lake Katherine.  The bench by the lake is a wonderful place to sit and watch nature.

When I stood on the shore the swans and ducks slowly swam my way, wondering if I had food for them.  Since I didn’t, they continued feeding in the water.  I think someone had thrown some seeds or crumbs on the ice.  There are signs that say “DO NOT FEED THE WILDLIFE.” Further along my walk, a young couple were feeding geese and ducks, but they got a scolding from some of the regular walkers.

As I was getting ready to leave some walkers, who had just arrived, were surprised to have a flock of ducks following them and begging for food.

It looks like someone finally got to use their snowshoes, even though the show was not really deep.

I tried to get some shots of the swelling pear and maple blossoms, but those pictures did not turn out well.

    Beautiful photos. And what a blessing to take a walk when the weather is mild and see swans and ducks. Thank you for visiting and liking my blog. (^_^)

  4. Yes, bread just chokes ducks but still everyone likes to feed them especially small children.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog – our snow has now gone and today I was planting some clematis seeds. So I am really hoping that Spring is coming…
