We didn't see them, as usual. They've rebuilt three dams, and something was swimming about underwater, blowing bubbles; an otter or two, or a beaver. We never saw anything break the surface.
But there were ducks, and new spring growth, and reflections on the water; we weren't disappointed.

|His mate, far in the distance|
|Mallard pair, on mirror-like water|
|Indian plum, just starting to bloom|
|I love how these early salmon berry blossoms start out all crinkly.|
|Laurie just had to take this view of a wild rose tangle; stems and thorns. Wicked thorns.|
|Robin hunting for worms in the grass.|
Blogger has been uncooperative tonight; it wouldn't load any of my photos, nor would they upload to Picasa for Blogger's use. I linked these from Flickr, but over Blogger's protests. If they're not showing up, let me know in the comments. Thanks!
