Wintry May Morning...
A female Mallard and her nine youngsters swim against a light snow early this morning as Peggy, Dallas, and I walked along the southern shore of Stanfield Marsh.
If you look closely at the enlarged picture you'll see blurry streaks of snow, blowing from left to right, and a few snowflakes decorating the feathers of the ducklings.
It was 30° in our yard at 7 A.M. today with light to medium snow flurries which are projected to increase through tomorrow and taper off Saturday.
We usually get a spring snow somewhere near Mother's Day so this is nothing unusual for a sunny Southern California in the spring, at 6,750 feet above sea level anyway.
