Camera Critters #19

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

I was fishing today on Lake Hodgson. It was a little windy but a great day for a sweatshirt. It got warmer as the day proceeded. The birds were active on the lake. Click on the pictures to get a better view.
The Canadian Geese flew bye honking.
The cormorant was showing off on the buoy.
The water pup was a busy place, the Great blue Heron was fishing and the gull and cormorants were resting.
I was able to get fairly close to the Great Blue Heron. I saw him snag several fish from his perch.
The sea gull was not doing much.
Dillon was a little guy fishing the shore. He caught this Yellow Perch, a Bluegill and a War-mouth.
The Fishing Guy caught some also but that's for another day.

Good catch! Makes me hungry! Obviously a good day!
Not so much here. Grey and with a Hurricane approaching not too cheery!
Cheers anyway, Klaus

What a fun day you had! I have never tried fishing. Looks like a great way to relax and get rewarded. =) By the way, nice shot on the blue heron.

Marvelous photos!

When I was young, I fished a fish called here in Brazil "garoupa", a big fish with scale!

I love your bird shots, my friend... especially the Heron (yes, I'm jealous too, because I can't get a good shot of one hehe).

If you ever decide to venture out Mogadore Reservoir way... don't be concerned if you see a wolf come running up to you... it's just my boyfriend, Matouk ;-) Gosh I wish I were them with him and Dad right now - we would have been out casting for sure!!!

Louise said...

So many birds near water! Oh, and fish. I guess that makes for a great day! (Needing a sweatshirt in the morning is the first hint of a great day.)

Lyn said...

Wonderful pictures! The place looks so serene and packed with wildlife, sounds fun!

Luke Wiley said...

I especially like the blue heron!

Tootie said...

Oh, that was fun! And, I believe I see crappie. I haven't seen any since I moved from Missouri over 30 years ago. We used to catch them there all the time. I think they are the best eating fish.

Thanks for taking us along, I enjoyed looking at the birds too.

Cormorant. We have the elsuive on on the harbour. Beautiful birds. I love all these shots. Never enough birds for me. The Heron is wonderful.
