It all started when I was a very little girl. You see, my mom has this bunch of cattails prominently displayed near the piano. We weren't allowed to touch them, but for some reason I was always drawn to them. I think it was around the time we moved, that Mom gave them to us finally. They were good and dry, and oh, so much fun!!!
It really is a two-step process.
1. Loosen the seeds. It can be tricky if they were just picked.
2. Wave, blow, shake, or run...
Her daughter insisted that she should have this experience too.

Such a copy cat :)
Now we are talking.
It is nice to have helpers who will circle the lake to encourage the ducks back across to me :)
It was nice to get another chance to photograph these birds... still NOT satisfied with my results, but they will work for now.
This is the lone mystery bird in the midst of the American Coots... Eurasian Wigeon (female)???
I kept trying to capture their red eye and the red spot at the base of the bill. Can you see it?
We just had to test the new swings... you know, to make sure they were safe for the kids ;)
Hang on tight!
Have you ever tried this?
Check out those big boy underwear (Cars, to be exact).
