Weather Fit for Ducks

With Hurriance Sandy dropping 5 inches of rain on us today, I thought of the old saying "this weather is fit only for ducks." So I decided I post a picture of ducks I took last week in Orlando Florida. This mother mallard duck watches carefully over one of her new ducklings at the quiet pool at Disnet's Boardwalk Resort. Canon 7D, 1/160 sec @ f/18.0, ISO 400, 100mm macro lens.

Meet Crew

- This is "Crew" he is a four month old golden retriever destined to be a guide dog for the blind. We spent yesterday in historic Leesburg Virginia with Crew and his puppy raiser Irene Esch. Crew was wearing his guide dog in training vest while visiting many shops with us and even joined us for lunch in a small restaurant with live music. I was amazed at how focused he was and how good he behaved the entire day. Navigating in tight crowed antique shops and resisting the attention everyone was wanting to give him. He won't begin his official guide dog training until he is at least one year old, but we could tell he's going to make someone a great guide dog. Canon G11, 1/640 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.
