Bashful and Not-So-Bashful Birds

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!
