There was a break in the snowfall today-the proverbial “calm before the storm”. Mika and I headed out to see if what winged creatures might be swimming along the Red River of the North.
It’s almost like the big drake hooded merganser knows I’m looking for him. Ever since I’ve had my camera with, he’s been mia. But some of his friends have been around, trying to find some lunch!
I was able to close the gap on a few geese and while I enjoy getting close to old Blackfoot, pictures of geese really start to look alike after a while. You need to find something unique to get a shot that stands out.
Besides I’ve always been more of a duck guy.
Anyway, here are a couple more pictures from today. Hopefully we’ll get some more species to look at soon.
Or better yet, hopefully I’ll be back in a blind taking pictures of snow geese!
