Swan Lake

with Buffleheads, Mallards and Geese! Oh My! Our little "pond" in the back has grown considerably since all the snow has melted. I swear, it looked like a glacier came through. In February, we had one day of warmth followed by two days of rain and then more snow. So the pond grew and froze and now we have our own little lake, teeming with wildlife.

There are a couple of decent size lakes "over yonder" where we have seen Swans before, but this is the first time they have visited our little piece of heaven. It's been so much fun watching them all, especially the adorable Buffleheads - diving ducks. I am trying to get a photo of them - there are about 5 or 6, but they skedaddle when I go out on the deck.
