Camera Critters - ducks & cat

Feather or fur
They love the spring
I cannot resist Oscar's beautiful plumage!

Camera Critters

I can swim - canoe?
Brave boy. Oliver leaped from the dock to the floating log. Then crawled under the dock crib.

I love my mergansers, too.

Great shots !!!

I rather like the one of the cat in the boat and on the log ...brave kitty :-)

It's kind of like he's saying ' Mmmmmmm, supper ... now how do I get this thing moving !' :-)

wonderful nature pics Sandy

Oskar said...

I bet that cat would be mad if he fell in.

Jenn Jilks said...

You are right, Oskar, unlike dogs (like you) who do not mind the water. But he's pretty nimble and quick as a fox. He follows me around the house and our property like a dog!

He is quite a character.

Love your merganser footage. We see them very briefly during migration and only if we're lucky -- we missed them the last 2 years.

Jenn Jilks said...

They've been hanging around a few weeks now, Jain. I expected them to leave with the ice going out but temperatures have hovered around 0 C. at night. A bit chilly for them to move north.

Thanks for the comments, all! We love our critters.

Did you know there is a "cat and duck" method for flying in the clouds. You take a cat and duck up with you in the cockpit on cloudy days. You put the cat on the floor of the airplane and watch him if he leans left or right. This will help you keep the airplane straight and level. When it's time to land, you throw the duck out the window and follow him to the ground because as everyone knows, a duck doesn't like to fly in the clouds. Now there is your flying lesson for the day. - Margy
