It's time to show some of Jakes' pictures.
All of the following pictures were taken at the Morden sewage lagoons.
Usually one doesn't think of beauty and sewage lagoons together,but
this is a great place to observe and photograph water and shore birds.
What is cuter than a baby duck?
A family of baby ducks.
This family of Wood Ducks is out for a swim.
The Ruddy Duck is a unique duck,to be sure.
This male was displaying his beauty to some females nearby.
Red-necked Phalaropes are busy feeding on insect life on the water.
Also feeding is this Black Tern.
Terns are very sleek looking birds and dive into the water for food.
Not exactly on the water,but nearby is this Northern Harrier.
These birds have been hard for Jake and me to capture,but on this day
this female was so busy hunting,that she did not mind jake taking her picture.
When photographing birds,one can get some strange surprises.
When this image came up on the computer we had a good laugh.
Bombs away,look out below!
Nature gives us so much beauty and then throws in a smile now and then.
