Beauty Of Twilight

THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN AT SUNSET LAST NIGHT AND I WAS BLESSED WITH A VISIT BY THE MALLARD COUPLE.  After pictures, I gave them some dried bread and they were happy with their twilight snack!  I like to keep them coming all winter because this same couple has been having their young here each year and they bring the new brood right up to the bird feeder to get the dropped seeds.  They trust us so much that they let us take pictures and coo and talk to the little ones.  I always look forward to that.

I love the reflections in this one!

Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are such a lovely couple!  What beauty I see in the reflection of the wispy pink clouds...

Good night burning embers of night sky,
Good night beautiful Mallards floating by.
Good night silouetted trees against sky
Good night to all the birds that fly
Silently above the clouds to find
Their roosting place that will be kind
Until the morning light.
