Clear Lake, Oregon
Continuing the adventure… in case you haven’t seen enough of this placid lake:
(oops, caught a bit of my kayak in the corner, but decided to leave it as part of the scene).
Row boats for hire if you’re not lucky enough to own your own kayak… 😉
I seem to be drawn to these lovely wakes left by the ducks and the colored reflections on the water.
So many ducks to shoot that weren’t flying off at the drop of a hat… (some goldeneyes, with a tiny dipper to the left.)
This is very heavily cropped because I didn’t have the zoom lens at this moment, but it was an osprey that flew overhead carrying his catch.
A common merganser. These ducks always make me think of Phyllis Diller with her goofy hairdo, though this one’s hairdo isn’t fluffed up or clearly visible in this shot.
A favorite action shot. ( a teal and the back end of a goldeneye)
A closer look at a goldeneye. (Who knew there were so many varied ducks?)
A blue winged teal. This one and her babies will be featured in the next post. That’s more than enough shots for one post.
