Viewing wildlife is one of the reasons we go for walks down by the bay. This year the water levels have been so high due to the heavy spring rains that regular viewing and nesting places have frequently been under water. But today we saw some mallard ducks and the heron who had found new places to rest.
How do they keep their balance? They tuck up one leg and perfectly still on the other leg for ages.
This group of mallard ducks had found a napping place on some sunny rocks.
The great blue heron thought he was hiding in the rushes, but I got some good photos of him. I wonder if they alternate legs after awhile to rest the other one?
These two little turtles were balanced on top of a slippery rock.
I just couldn’t resist a close up of the heron.
And one as he turned his head to see what I was doing.
The more you look the more you see.
Nature never fails to amaze me.
Have a look at some more of my lens friends photos.
