Exploding Egg

Duck Porn

OK, now that I have your attention…

Today, thanks to a little rainy weather, I got to take a walk on the ditch by my house without getting hives. It’s duck mating season, so I brought my camera along to try to catch the little guys behaving badly.

Unfortunately, or fortunately for them, I was out of luck. No duck porno for you, dear reader.

But I did notice the sad plight of this guy:

Poor dude can't find a duck girlfriend

It's sad in spring when the duck ladies aren't digging your plumage

Maybe he'll have better luck downstream

A couple days before there were about 20 ducks of both genders hanging out in a wet patch on the field. I guess this guy just got there a little too late. Hopefully he’ll find his soul mate somewhere further down the ditch path.

With more rain passing through, I also got to capture a few images of New Mexico’s big sky to show you all. The altitude here in the high desert really makes for some beautiful cloudscapes.

The Big Sky

A cloud that appears to be unzipping

That’s one thing I’ll really miss as I head off to Oregon on Friday. Although replacing it with seascapes is even better in my opinion.

Update: The clouds delivered a little moisture as promised, so here’s a couple quick videos — more for sound than pictures — of spring rain in Albuquerque.

And finally, a couple of it coming down hard:
