I was really hoping to find some frogs or toads, and I could hear them croaking away but they all went silent everytime I would move. Plus, I had on work shoes rather than 'tromping through sludge' shoes, so I couldn't get all that close to where they were most likely to be.
But there were birds. And down a slight hill, from the brush about five feet from where I stood, out popped a goose running awkardly as fast as he could. Luckily I had my camera in speed mode knowing that the local birds freak out at the slightest hint of a person, so I got this neat photo:
Plus another black bird that was delightfully uninterested in me as I approached.
Here is Lake Kampeska today. The ice is finally starting to melt.
The weekend is here. Wishing you pleasant weather and views that brighten you days.
