AMERICAN WIGEON

American WigeonEvery year in late October, several pairs of American Wigeons stop here on their migration south. You can almost tell the date by these birds. I took quite a few photographs of them and will feature more over the coming months.

GREAT EGRET RETURNS

Great Egret 2This is the second in a series of photos I took of an egret taking some turns on a beaver lodge. Perhaps he was digesting his lunch. There are some big catfish in this lake although the high water level might have made fishing difficult. I was at a sufficient distance not to disturb him and happily he was in no hurry to leave.

MALLARD IN FALL

Mallard in Fall

I liked the pattern in the water, so I centred the mallard. I broke the rule of thirds but I feel the photograph wouldn’t have been as good if I hadn’t.
At this point in the year (late fall), the trees are bare and on a cloudy day, the water takes on this sombre cast, relieved somewhat by the mallard and the ripples created as he moves through the water.
