Hi Dear Friends,
Pictures were taken with a Canon 7D, 400mm Hand Held.

This winter seeing your lovely hummingbirds and eagles makes me crave Spring Time even more to see my Hummingbirds and makes me sad knowing that my Bald Eagle season has just come to a close.

With that said, I woke up this morning so tired of gray skies and lack of sunlight and said I am going to my nearby lakes desperately seeking any thing moving to capture it with hopes that the clouds will move for the minute needed to capture a picture of a duck!

It was not a good day because it was cloudy, bitterly cold, windy and nothing was moving but then I saw this cute little lady! Hope you think she is cute too







Now I would like to ask your expertise. Do you know what is the name of these two adorable cuties? They are very tiny and were swimming all alone, no mother in sight. This picture is major cropped and I know it is over exposed. This picture is just for reference to know what these cuties are!







Hope you enjoy and a very Happy 2013 to you all here.

Happy New Year BB. I was feeling the same way today, but while I enjoyed the critters I saw, none took me up on an the offer of a free photo shoot.

Very nice feel to that first one and the little PBGs are really cool too. Hope your (and our) weather takes a turn for the better soon.

I feel your pain -- these days in this weather any living creature is fair game! The PBGs are always fun to see.
