Since it's National Camera Day, June 29, I thought I'd share something our camera captured a few days ago.
I'd never been that close to one before. Usually I see them all the way on the other side of a pond. This one was right there so we got a really good look at it.
It almost didn't look real. Especially when it was head on. It's eyes looked like glass eyes you would find in a puppet or stuffed animal. It was real, though. It must not have been too bothered by us, either. It didn't squawk and fly away. It did close its eyes after a while and adjust its head position.
Happy National Camera Day.
