I was focusing my camera on the distant ducks when this little guy motored into my field of vision. He was fast. I don’t think I’ve seen a Pied-billed Grebe before. Fun.

Wood Duck

Wait. Why in the world is this beautiful creature called Wood Duck?! It should be called the Da Vinci Duck, the Van Gogh Duck, or the Renoir Duck, because it is such a masterpiece of contrasting colours and vibrant tones. Pure beauty.

Yesterday it rained

After the rain was mostly over, I went to the woods.

Oh oak tree!

Oh oak tree!

We may not have a show of blooms in this part of the world just yet, but there is plenty of colour, and there are even some exotic specimens.
