BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

CENTRE STAGE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

24 Comments

American Wigeons visit our region in the late summer and remain until the first frost. These photos were taken in November. I thought the reflections in the water were as central to the first photograph as the wigeon, so I chose to do a modest crop. In the second photo the swirls in the water framed the male duck nicely though he was definitely the star in this shot.

  10. It is always a joy to see this elegant duck, and your photos do a marvelous job, Belinda, of highlighting him. I especially like the second photo, the water wake and the leaves in his mouth are exquisite.

  11. Great colouring. I love the soft rust colour, but the head, too, has such a beautiful design and markings. And what perfect green circles ring him.
