Over the last couple of years I’ve taken several shots of the Maquoketa Dam (Maquoketa actually gets some of their electricity from the dam.) But I went there Friday during my lunch hour and I thought the combination of a deep blue sky and the mix of open water and snow just made it a great Winter landscape image.
While I was taking shots of the Dam I heard some sounds coming from over the bank and when I went over to investigate I found this family of ducks. This group of four swam together and apart from another group of ducks.
Not being an outdoors-man or hunter I don’t know anything about ducks nor their habits but the two big ducks acted like they were the parents of the two younger ducks.
Anyway it was fun just to get out with my camera and take some shots. Thanks for stopping by.
It is -7 this morning with a 12 mph wind so wimp that I am I’m not going hunting for Eagles today.
