I was very much looking forward to heading out in the yak this past Sunday with visions of Greenies dancing in my head. The morning broke with clear skies pre-sunrise but when I got to the lake the marine layer had condensed and the ubiquitous morning clouds formed. I spent a lot of time just poking around until the clouds thinned a little bit providing a bit of diffused light. I took advantage of that photographing a preening male Wood duck who was quite cooperative.
I also included 2 hummers, one for those of you that weren't really fond of my wingless wonder in my last post... here is one fully outstretched for you. Also one just for fun.
