Especially during this time of year, I try to visit a pond daily if I can. When all goes well, I shall have lots more bird photos coming up over the next month or two with Spring on the way.
I love the relationship between duck and I. There is no such thing as “that’s just a duck” to me. All birds, mammals, animals, are spiritual relationships and connections to me, and I treat them as such … with respect. I am pretty new to birding, and so the more time I spend with ducks, the more fascinated I become.
There is always a fine balance between, how close can I get, and how close will they come; then I stop, breathe and BE … to not frighten them away.
