11-13-10 Alone on a Still Pond

Duck on Meadowbrook Pond, Seattle

On Saturday mornings I try to get a long walk in. This morning I headed to Meadowbrook Pond. This is a stormwater detention pond that has been made into a park with a walking trail and amphitheatre for the nearby neighboorhood. I have visited it several times and seen many types of birds but this morning only the Mallard Ducks were out.

The sky was overcast and there were several young boys here making a lot of noise with a sword fight. I think this limited my bird watching opportunites, but they were clearly having a good time. Photos weren't great because of this, but I liked this lone male on the still water, and it fits this week's theme.

Edit: cropping
Great reflections in thebackground.Very nice.

Beautiful, Shannon. And the caption is perfect. It's hard to get such still water with a duck sitting on it!

Beautiful reflections. I'm glad you were able to catch this between the rain drops yesterday.

It gives an atmosphere of rest and solitude, I like it when a picture gives you a feeling like that.
