Our Close Encounter With A Friendly Wild Duck

Tracy and I went to Chaparral Park in Scottsdale on Sunday and after we had walked around the 'lake' we sat down to talk.  A female mallard surprised, delighted, and honored us with her presence while we sat, and eventually allowed Tracy to pet her for a few moments.  We both felt deeply moved by the encounter.  Here's a brief video of the wonderful event.

And here's a longer video of some of the other beautiful, fun and interesting things we enjoyed in our visit to Chaparral Park.  Perhaps you have time to enjoy some of it vicariously.
