On November 11,Jake and I spent the day in Winnipeg,mostly at St.Vital Park.
The park has a nice pond and is a good place to photograph waterfowl.
This Mallard was sitting right beside the path and had no intentions of moving.
I think that I was being told to move on.
Oh well,I got my pictures so that was fine.
This looks like it could be a young male,with just a tinge of green on the head.
You know I have to take at least some reflection pictures.
For now this one will have to do,but there are more.
This might be a good one for 'what is it?'
This is the back of a Canada Goose.
I only cropped it a little bit,so you can see I was very close to the bird.
The detail in the feathers is amazing.This is just another facet of God's creation.
I liked the blue in the wing.I'm not sure about that look.Does she look angry or sleepy?
This couple was busy preening.Just take a look at the color on his head,almost like brown velvet.
The geese were so close that with the 400mm lens I had a hard time getting them on the picture.
I like this one for the reflections.
God has created a world of such diversity and beauty,we only need to stop and enjoy it
The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.
