Going on a short trip

Today we leave for a few days in Key West, where we’ll be meeting up with our son and family. I’m so looking forward to seeing them all again. Whilst we’re away, I’ve asked Mr. A to keep an eye on our place. He’s agreed to glide by a couple of times a day, but when I remarked on how much he seems to have grown lately, and asked him if he’d seen any ducklings around, he totally avoided the question.

I did see the darling little baby out for a swim with his mom yesterday. She kept him very close.

I guess that as any good mom would be, she was very alert to any danger which might be lurking.

This sweet little neighbour has become a regular visitor to my bit of garden out back. He’s usually too quick for me to get a shot as he scurries across the patio on his way to the palm trees, but today he paused for a couple of moments. It seems quite the thing at the moment to name wild animals, so I’ve called him Cyril.

He likes to eat upside down, which surely can’t be good for the digestion.

He didn’t seem overly worried when I pointed this out to him.

He just carried on eating and then raced off to report for lookout duty.

Mr. GBH was far too busy scouting for fish when I went to tell him that I and my camera wouldn’t be around for a few days.

The Great Egret hardly missed a beat as he high-stepped it along the water’s edge.

I’m sorry to say that I won’t be taking any of you along with me, but I’ll be back at the weekend, so you’ll hardly have time to miss me. Have a great rest of the week. See you again soon.
