I just needed a time out so I took the afternoon off and went to the Tautphaus park Zoo (https://www.idahofallsidaho.gov/1230/Zoo) in Idaho Falls. There was a LOT of smoke in the air from the wildfires so I was unable to stay long. AND I found this pond of wild waterfowl with the cutest male ruddy duck. I think I shall name him Marley. Every time I left the pond I would find myself wandering back to it. I didn’t see many wild animals or much of the zoo at all. But I sure got to study the Marley the Ruddy duck.
It took me a long time to go through the photos from this day. I’m sure you know why.
