Birds Flew


overhead and dove with a wet kerthunk into the swimming pool. Ripples spread fast and wide while a happy mallard and his muted mate floated under the fountain spray and made plans to settle in for the full season.

I took a few 'can you believe this' video clips before picking up a broom to discourage them.

They left in a great flap and haven't returned.

The watercolor, Down from Under, is on a book cover and was inspired by a photo taken with a disposable underwater camera.
