Ducks at Theta Pond

Some days are just too nice to stay inside.  Sunday was one of those days, with cool weather in the 60’s and partly cloudy, crisp blue skies.  The sun would weave in and out of the clouds, leaving a perfect balance between hard and soft lighting for most of the day.  It’s the light I love for outdoor photography – not to harsh and not too soft.

I decided to stop by Theta pond and take a few photos of the ducks and geese. They’re so used to being fed by people that they quickly swarm to anyone who approaches the pond edge. They posed and gathered all around me for at least 30 minutes before finally coming to the realization that my camera was not a large, oddly shaped piece of food. I think I owe them something next time.
