Black Ducks for Camera Critters

Ducks are becoming more difficult to find these days but there is one small pond where I can often catch a glimpse of a duck for as soon as my car approaches they scatter.  However one day this week I was able to capture a photo of one in flight as it was fleeing away and from the picture below I was able to id the duck as a Black Duck.  Its beautiful 'blue patch' was very recognizable!

A wonderful day is wished to all on this cool second day of September.  School is just around the corner and as a retired teacher I shall wave to all of those yellow buses rolling down the highway on Tuesday morning.
