Ben Gill ducks

After my workout last night, I headed over to Ben Gill Park. I found some ducks that didn't mind getting their picture taken.

This one isn't in focus as much as I would like, but I like the
reflections of the ducks heads.

Scott Kelby announced the winners of the Worldwide Photowalk. Our entry from Terrell didn't win. I would like to think that its not that it wasn't a great photo, but the winner and runner ups were some fantastic shots. I am looking forward to next year.

Cliff has his NCAA football predictions over at The Full Count v2.0. I agree with many of his choices and I like Texas in the BCS Championship game. Hop over to his site to see all of his picks.

37 days till the State Fair of Texas kicks off.

Is it Friday yet?

For a second there, I thought there were ducks actually called "Bill Gill".

I like the concentric circles around the duck in your first photo.

Wow!! What a hard job Scott had in choosing those photos. Glad I didn't have to pick.

Ducks are always so cute. MB

The bottom photo appeals to me. Water reflections always enhance the snapshot, don't you think?!

I looked at his predictions. I have to disagree on the SEC. Florida is loaded (again). They play almost nobody and all the SEC rivals are having a rebuilding year. It is hard to repeat, however.

I love the first picture and the ripples are perfect around the duck.

These are just ducky! I like the colors of the top duck! And the reflection!

The light is excellent in the second shot!
