MISTY MORNING MALLARDS
It was a great week of summer weather and I was rising early, driving around the back roads looking for wildlife, trying to catch the light before going in to work. I had discovered a nearby pond that often had waterfowl on it: ducks, cormorants, geese, etc. It was just a big, square, man-made pond that wasn’t very picturesque but I could get a clear shot of it from the road. My scouting paid off when I got these mallards drifting in and out of the morning mist just as the sun cleared the banks.
