I’m always excited to trek out to Sunset Bay because you just never know what you might see. I’ve been trying to get a good shot of the Northern Shoveler that has been hanging around and today it decided to hang out within the camera’s reach. I took quite a few shots but, as usual, I deleted most of them.
This female Mallard settled in quite close to me as I was taking photos of the Northern Shoveler. She wanted all of my attention, which is quite unusual. Usually the mallards are quick to get away from most humans. I liked her expression.
I’m not sure what this bird is but I did notice the different color on it’s head. I thought it was interesting. It flew off before I could get a better shot. Next time!
