you know I do love the water behind my house.....we get baby ducks....muskrats....grouse and quail....our neighbors have had a flock of pheasants right behind her house at the ditch bank for a couple weeks. But today was a bit special.....as you can see. He stayed there for quite a while....didn't seem to be to disturbed...it was hot.....maybe he was just "cooling off." Whatever was the reason...he graced us with his presence and I was grateful to have him so close. Just a typical Monday....LOL yeah right!
