Today turned out to be just another day in Bobbyville. I had intended to run around shooting pictures in the Marigny and the Bywater. Instead, Bobby got a call from a dentist he'd been trying to reach for a little - ahem - emergency, so I wound up driving him to Metairie (that's in Southeast Louisiana just outside New Orleans).
While I waited for him to come out, I found myself fascinated by a flock of wild ducks gamboling on the neutral ground in front of the dentist's office.
This beauty was nesting.
