I continue to heal from my heart operation and try to visit as much as possible.
Today I was again trying to get the best Mallard Duck reflection that I could. I must have a duck compulsion because each time I see them on my walks along the little Fishcreek stream I have to stop and shoot.
This day was a little special as two males were swimming together in close formation. I was standing very still and happily snapping away.
All of a sudden my gaze was averted as something came swimming along my side of the stream.
Do you know what it is? I was shooting through the weeds so I got this fuzzy capture.
There was finally a break in the weeds and I got a good head shot.
The next thing I knew after the few shots it was gone down the stream. Can you tell what just surprised me along the stream? Make sure you check the shape of the tail before you decide. Here's a clue, it's not a beaver but does live in the stream.
I will let you find out if you really don't know. If you look at Camera Critters # 5, you will see one I captured and named last year.
