Walking the WPA on Sunday Morning

I got up around 6:30 again this morning, and saw to it that my brother Marty’s dog Waukegan got her morning antibiotic pill (so Marty could sleep in) before taking Sergeant Margie with me over to the WPA Rock Garden for our walk.  There wasn’t a lot going on, but I did get some praying mantis and damselfly photos.  We also got to see some mama ducks with their babies at the duck pond, along with some big crayfish.  One of the ducklings had an open sore spot on his back and I couldn’t imagine what might have happened to him… Then I saw the second mother duck come over and try to bite him as he entered the pond.  Poor little thing…  The dog and I walked for about 2 hours and then headed back to the car.
