3rd and Final Post from Sunday

Here you go. The final installment from Sunday's awesome day.  More ducks for your enjoyment. I ran across a combination of ducks at the Cox Hall Creek pond in late afternoon. The sunlight reflecting off of the brown grass gave the water a tan/bronze tone which gives these photos an interesting color hue.  The first photo show 2 types of Mergansers. The larger duck is a Common Merganser and the smaller ones are Hooded Mergansers.  This is the best photo of Common Merganser that I have.

 Here are a few left over photos from Barnegat Lighthouse. These are Common Eider which are really big sea ducks.  I like the way they just glide over the waves.  The second photo shows a male flapping with a bunch of females surrounding him - like "hey, look at me!"

That's all for now. I'm slammed at work, so you probably won't get another post until the weekend.

I couldn't agree more with the HH. Great post, you really kept your readers sitting on the edge of our seats, waiting for the next installment. I'm almost as sad to see this end as I will be after one more Downton Abby...
