I took these about February, when it wasn't raining.
I am still working very hard on the new home.

  26. Exceptional photo of what we refer to as a Red-headed Duck (Aythya americana).

    I'm not sure what the difference, if any exists between the two.

  27. Keep focus, keep staring at the eye.

    The duck will then response.

    Your new home must be as beautiful as your header.
