Default First day on the golf course this winter

My first day on the golf course this winter turned out great

It started with a Hawk sitting on the distance flags on the driving range, I couldn’t get close because people were hitting balls in that direction but I was temped, major crop

Then came the ducks the ponds were full of them

Then this little guy on our way back to the car

All in all a great day of golf, the more wildlife I see the lower my score (strokes)

Wonderful shots! I'd come to one shot, think "that's got to be my favorite" then I'd go to the next one and think the same thing. By the time I came to the squirrel I gave up trying to decide on a favorite, they are all excellent.

What a productive day on the course! The Sandhill Crane is my favorite - but each is a gem!

I really like the "duck races anyone" capture.

Obviously, this is not Michigan! Are you in Florida somewhere?

Good thing you didn't say first day "golfing". You obviously didn't golf. :-). Only kidding. Nice shots. Sure makes me want to get out of NH right now. Way too cold lately to even attempt outdoor photos. Although, might be my old bones speaking there.

Thanks all for the kind words, Yes I am currently in Florida in the Port Charlotte Area, Got to love retirement. My old bones also can't handle Michigan's weather
