It is amazing how the color of the water can change from one day to another based upon the sky. From blue to green to a deep foreboding black. This day we were greeted with a blue cloudless sky reflecting on a deep blue sea which made for a great day of paddling between Qorneq and Kuummitt in East Greenland.
A domestic Pekin duck peeking out from behind the shrubs on the local pond. Last year the pond was visited by a domestic mandarin this year it looks like a Pekin has made this place his home. Not sure if these domesticated ducks flew the coop or were abandoned but it is fun to see them join the mix of winter visitors which are just starting to arrive.
A juvenille Black Crowned Night Heron is taking a break from his fishing but still keeping an eye on the water below while perched in an old cottonwood tree along clear creek in Denver, CO. He sure looks good wrapped in those fall colors.
Calm water and a funky sky hours before a major storm blew through. Rain and wind all night had us holding onto the tent poles to prevent a collapse. A little vinegar in the stew makes it just a bit more flavorful. Angmagssalik fjord, Greenland.
Or perhaps looking sharp? This Western Meadowlarks beak fits right in amongst the barbed wire, sharp steel fence post and did I mention those claws. I wouldn’t like to tangle with any of them. Arapahoe Wildlife Refugee near Walden, CO.
