A Great Encounter With The Ruddy Duck
Sunday I was near the North deck at the Celery Bog when I saw a couple of ruddy ducks near the deck. They dive down to get their food so if I moved closer when they were underwater I thought that I could get right up to the edge of the deck without them noticing. It has to look like a crazy dance, but I would move a few steps every time that they dove under water. Soon enough I was close enough to them to nearly fill my frame. You can’t beat being this close to any kind of wildlife.
Waiting For Spring
In the spring this male will have an amazing blue bill on it. Hopefully I can get this close to a pair like this again when they are in their breeding plumage.
