Boom! Eureka

Here is a series of photographs that I captured of the recent response to a suspicious device left near a local business. Multiple agencies were involved with investigating and disposing of the device; which proved ultimately to be non-explosive.

Police shut down streets surrounding the business where the device was found

April Fools Duck

Literally, a duck in my yard on April 1st. As far as I know, not a prank.

I’m not entirely familiar with duck species, and thus was taken aback by the appearance of the Muscovy drake with red puffy skin covering much of the face. I snapped these photos; realizing this was a domesticated bird as he approached me for food.

He lingered until sundown before taking wing over the city in a westerly direction.
