First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

Photo Friday: Birds of Winter

January 22, 2016

This time of the year is a great time to capture water birds in Maine.  Some are migrating, and some are year round, but it supplies some good opportunities.  To some, these may seem like ordinary geese and ducks, but others never get a chance to see these kinds of birds.  Either way, I hope you enjoy these shots.
