I barely caught a glimpse of the gorgeous Eastern Blue Jay as it flitted around in thick shrubbery and the lower branches of a gigantic Live Oak tree. On the other hand, the small group of Mottled Ducks was quite eager to waddle up to where my husband and I were standing on the low raised walkway pier leading to an over the water gazebo on a local park pond here in The Villages, FL.
No, I would not call most park ducks here “Bashful”! Ha! Excellent beggars but the poor ducks got no treats that afternoon from me. Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
