Winter is the time for waterfowl around here. In the summer we have mallard ducks, a few gadwalls and a batch of Canada geese. This time of year the mallards and gadwalls are around, plus a few more. Yesterday I went to a park down on the lake and saw a wonderful variety of waterfowl, plus some seagulls. I don’t have the camera equipment to get great shots of birds far out on the water, but I do take some not-so-great shots to use at home to help with identification.
This is what an afternoon at the park can look like:
It’s hard to stay inside painting when it’s so sunny out! Sometimes I need the sun. I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek at the local wildlife. Now I’ll get back to work on a watercolor painting that you’ll seen here soon.
