FROM READERS: A ducky Friday

Sunday, January 20, 2013 | 5:06 p.m. CST
Photographer John Hall shares photos from a cold morning drive with his dogs.

John Hall frequently photographs his mid-Missouri surroundings, and he has been sharing his images with the Missourian for several years. He sent us these pictures on Friday.

The warm temperatures in the 20's this morning gave the dogs the urge to make me take them for a drive.  By the time we arrived back at the homestead there were 1157 photos on the camera disk  that begged to be downloaded.  Having no one else to share them with I thought I'd put them on the Internet and see if anyone liked at least one of them.

In this group are the Blue Herons on Parade  along with some Mallards, Northern Shovelers, Green Wing Teal and then more Northern Shovelers and Mallards.  

The big bird flying with the greatest of ease is a Red Tail Hawk.  He keeps an eye out for a snack at all times.  

If you can't see the slideshow embedded above, view it on Flickr here.

This story is part of a section of the Missourian called From Readers, which is dedicated to your voices and your stories. We hope you'll consider sharing. Here's how. Supervising Editor is Joy Mayer.
