Wet Stuff

I have been hanging around a local creek recently, trying to get more photos of a beaver family.  While my success with beavers has been limited I have photographed a few other subjects in, or on, the water...

Here are two domestic fowl enjoying a tranquil morning...


This photo shows the early morning mist rising from the stream...


When this duck came by I had to look twice before I realized that it is a wild Mallard crossed with a domestic duck...


This photo was taken to document the number of gnats swarming above the water.  The reason for the different sizes is that the camera was focused at water level and the gnats closer to the camera appear larger and out of focus...


This photo is of an immature Wood Duck that I have been seeing for about two weeks.  I don't know why it is alone because, at it's age, it should still be with the mother and the rest of the brood...


The carp are always present at this time of year...


I often see deer standing in the stream early in the day.  It must feel good to have a drink, and cool off, during the heat wave we have been experiencing...



Stop back soon.
