    Here in Austraila it is often said that Melbourne is a city that can experience weather conditions of the 4 seasons all in one day. Well today was one of those days. It didnt seem to worry the ducks at all!! I got up to find a thick blanket of fog so deep I was worried about the drive to work - only seeing a few car lengths in front at times. It was overcast until mid morning when it rained some nice soft summer rain. Lunch time was so warm I started to think I should have gone home to check everyone still had enough clean cool water...but after all the rain I knew it wasnt necessary Mid afternoon a huge storm hit and the temperature dropped very fast. I was fairly concerned about the ducks at home and if they would be seeking cover- or would they be demolishing the back yard by making puddles everywhere. My yard has often flooded in rain as heavy as today- and with it being one of the wettest November in many years- the ground was already soggy from the last few downpours.

    I wish I had of been able to get photos of the fog and the rain...but by the time I got home from work all I could photograph was the ducks enjoying the puddles...and then a few hours of a lovely evening.

    Thank you!! I love Runners- the way they look in a larger flock all walking- or running... is simply gorgoeus. The fellow eagerly looking through the fence at the pool of water on my concrete path was so cute trying to swim in the smaller pool on his side of the fence.

    Looks like weather made for ducks.

    I just realized that you're in Melbourne. A long time ago, my dad lived in Geelong for a while. I think he said it rained a lot there, overall.
