I've been cooped up in the house for a couple of weeks with some sort of flu/cold/sinus infection/bronchitis crud but today was a little warmer so I ventured out for a little while. I made myself a compilation cd for the car and just drove around. I've photographed these cypress trees before but today when I walked up to the lake, it was covered with ducks. Of course, they took to wing as soon as I got closer and my camera isn't fast enough to catch them in flight. You can see a few of them above the trees in this photo, though.
