My favorite way to start my day is a three mile walk around the lake at Joe Tucker Park in Helena. I enjoy the exercise but I particularly enjoy the entertainment provided by the local wildlife! Here are a few photos.......
Helena was voted by CNN Money Magazine as one of the Top 100 Best Places To Live in 2007.
This is a family of ducks that I have been watching since the little ones were just little fuzzy things. By the time I took this picture they had grown quite a bit. They all look like their mom now, I can't tell them apart, but they still do everything as a family.
There are LOTS of Canada Geese! They are fun to watch as they fly in and land on the water. There is one Daddy Goose, and there he is in the center of this photo although it's hard to tell much about him with his backside to the camera. He thinks he's in charge and keeps an eye on all the lady geese. They all chose to ignore me this morning.
Now this is something I don't see everyday! It's not unusual for there to be one or two people sitting by the lake with a fishing pole. I had no idea there was anything like this out there! This big catfish got a lot of attention that morning!
