Yep, I went back to Squaw Creek today. Because of the mild weather, I suspected that there would be little ice and I wanted to see what might still be hanging around. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a number of swans.
They are very beautiful in the bright sunlight. They weren’t too far from shore so getting a few good images wasn’t too difficult. Those pictured above are juvenile. Their parents were right next to them.
Look who’s walking on water!
Beside the swans, there are still a lot of snow geese and mallards hanging around. The mallards are very nervous. I’m sure they’ve been shot at a number of times by now. They’d fly away when the car got within 50 to 100 yards of them. I couldn’t get close enough for a decent image.
I always feel luck when I see bald eagles. I saw 4 mature and 6 immature eagles on my first trip around the lake. The one above just stayed perched begging to be photographed.
Great example of a very BAD background… I know better than posting an image like this! My photography friends will be disappointed in me! Neither it nor I could move to get a better background. I had to post it though because I love its attitude!
I then spied this very old house. I’ve been by it a number of times but had never seen it before today. I wonder why?
Talk about planting trees too close! Is this what’s meant by the saying, “Some people bring the house to the trees”? (Dodge truck commercial)
All in all, it was a pretty good day. I hope you enjoyed the swans and perhaps my rambling.
See Ya! Come back soon.
