Egrets and Ducks;

On our way back from usual grocery shopping the other day, I spotted these egrets and ducks looking friendly together♬♬♬

Bit blurry, but I loved their feathery head :-)

"Oh, you look like a swan, aren't you♪"
I was lucky to be able to take this acrobatic shot (^_^)
Linking this post to  "Saturday's critters"

I was out all day today, and tomorrow I'll be with my husband's band. Another festival they attend and play for the event.  Might be late for linking Eileen's meme. 
I'll try to catch up to your blog soon; Thank you SO much for your kind visits.
