Black, Green, and Gold: American Black Ducks in the Summer Sun

After a morning watching Eiders at our beach, these ducks were initially confusing - but lovely!

They may not be flashy or exotic, but the American Black duck is far from dull.

When you hit it right, the water in the marsh is like glass.  If it weren't for the deer flies and ticks, it would be heavenly!

When they spied us, they both turned and headed deeper into the marsh.  It looked like they were entering Never-Never Land!

Even watching them fly away was a pleasure!


I love positive comments, critical comments,and corrections most of all!
