Duck, Duck, Goose

Remember the old game you played in Kindergarten, Duck, Duck, Goose? While paddling a kayak around sunset on Lake Flower this summer, this is what I thought of.

Immature Mallard?

Lake Flower can be accessed from the boat launch in the village of Saranac Lake, New York. I made this trip during the summer.

Female Mallard?

The ducks hung out with the geese. I am guessing they felt protected from the eagles by doing so. Maybe in their minds an eagle would go after a goose instead.

The geese seemed okay with me, although I know they have a reputation of being cantankerous.

All of these were taken with a zoom lens and heavily cropped. Enjoy what’s left of summer.
