Woody Takes a Bath

Peering out at the Pond, I found Woody checking out the 'bath water"

He lowered himself into the pond and savored the moment..

..then he want slightly crazy lol..

..and then it was time to dry off..

...every angle had to face the sun..

There was nothing shy about him sunning himself.

The only thing better would have been if he had done all of this a little bit closer to my apartment so I didn't have to use the zoom so much.  And before I go.. a quick update on the Moorhen chicks, which I have named after the Marx brothers: Harpo, Chico, Zeppo, and Groucho

All Four babies are doing well...

 

"Eeee-gads, are we alone?!!"

"hey, mom where'd ya go?"

...giving herself a stretch before returning to her chores.

Honestly, Pat, your bird pics and commentaries give me such a laugh. I love Woody 'going crazy' and the chicks looking for 'mom'. Wonderful. :-)

Cath: glad you enjoy them.. I know I overdo the birds but at least they help keep my mind occupied. I guess it helps that they are very slow moving so photo's are easy LOL
the "where's mom?" was easy to think of if you could see how often they go running to her lol

The babies look so cute when their feathers are all downy/fur-like.
