This morning, I was feeling a little better and thought maybe some fresh air and sunshine would help me feel better. Combine that with the weather forecast calling for increasing bad weather the next few days, I decided to head over to Great Meadows.
It probably wasn't the wisest thing I've done, since I was totally tired when I got home, but the change of scenery did encourage my spirit. Along the way, I played with my teleconverter and captured some photos you might enjoy.
A ringed-neck duck. Click on the photo to view large, probably the best photo I've taken about why it's named a ringed-neck instead of a ringed-bill duck.
A Mallard in flight. Nothing special, except the longer the focal length, the tougher to find birds in flight in the viewfinder.
Do you prefer the blue or brown background?
If this Downy had gotten any closer I was going to have to backup!
A different pose
This time I did photograph some Palm Warblers
They were between the river & the trail, maybe 100 yards west of the boat ramp
A pair of Black-capped Chickadees were checking out this snag for a nest
