These next few posts were all taken today, at this lake, which is a bigger lake with a smaller lake near by. Man made. It was beautiful out today, we had a blizzard at the beginning of the week and lots of snow, it all melted yesterday, and today was perfect except for a lot of wind. It was 19 Celsius or 66 Fahrenheit. I walked around for a full hour, just enjoying the weather and the birds!
I was watching my step, being careful not to step in the poop, which is everywhere and I was taking pictures of the ones swimming in the water, and getting close to the waters edge, and I heard a noise and HOLY COW, it was right in front of me, LMAO about maybe 5 feet at the most, I nearly had a heart attack. Later on I had almost the same thing happen but was a good 7 - 10 feet, not as scary. But boy can they be quiet if they want to be! lol
