Christmas in S. Tx

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. Ours was spent with my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins down in South Texas. A little quail shooting, a little duck hunting and lots of time with family. In keeping with the major theme of this blog, some outdoor scenes follow.

and no wonder, she had a busy day with lots of retrieves on both water and land:

and an example of the whole animal:

As you can see, there is a lot of water down there right now, which is how we came to be duck hunting. Wading out into flooded brush:

Merry and Happy, Mike.

Cool whistling duck! Have never seen one, as they do not live in California...
