Continuing from Saturday's post...
more from Gull Island
These two pictures are of a Loon
This pretty duck is a Male Bufflehead, a real standout in the water.
These ducks swim with fast jerky movements, always diving for dinner.
You have to be quick if you want a picture...
I am not quick but I am very patient.
One Male Bufflehead with two Female companions.
Two Female Buffleheads
This Bufflehead swimming toward me, these ducks usually swim away from me...
another characteristic that makes them difficult to photograph.
All of the boats have been removed from the water.
The winter landscape looked really pretty to me...
The sky is gray, the air frozen,
the scenery is stark and the wild grasses that line the waters edge are a crisp dark brown.
This body of water will eventually lead us to the ocean.
The train went by while I was there.
There is something mysterious about trains, I adore the sound of the whistle.
