Out early, I packed up the camera and big lens and headed for the Strongsville Wildlife area. Because of the changing seasons, I thought this morning might be my last opportunity this year to capture images of the Great Egret and autumn colors. Arriving at the pond I was dismayed to see no wading birds and, in fact, no birds at all … at first. Whether it was my presence or just time to start moving, the Mallard ducks set out from their nighttime moorings, at first two or three, then the entire fleet. Their passage through colorful reflective waters made up for the missing egret.
Beautiful use of the reflective water and the colors of the season.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the compliment! I was so excited as I saw the scene developing in my viewfinder and delighted to be able to capture and share it. — JG
Wow! That is just a fantastic and beautiful picture of the ducks on the colorful water. I would say “Award Winning ! “
Why, thanks! I was happy to have a great subject to photograph when the one I’d hoped for didn’t show up! — JG
