Goldeneyes, 7″ wide by 1.75″ high
Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park, 02/02/22
I got to watch these three Male Goldeneyes for a long time. They where in a small saltwater inlet and they would paddle up current and then drift back down, over and over, while diving for snacks. I can only imagine why the three of them were hanging out together the whole time, but it had a guys night out vibe that I appreciated.
While it was a warm day for February the landscape definitely still had that bleak grey thing going on. It was tempting to change the color of the water for artistic reasons but then again I love leaving things they way they are. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to spot some cool ducks against the dark water, but that’s often what makes the difference between seeing cool birds or not seeing them. Sometimes you just have to slow down, spend some time in a place, and things reveal them selves.
Maybe that’s how these ducks felt about whatever they were snacking on 🙂
