Lovely landscape this afternoon with steel blue clouds drifting across calm Pacific Ocean with hints of reds and orange staining the surface. Mr Heron was a bit less trusting this afternoon, likely because of the higher volume of dog walkers and beach explorers. The clous made the air temperature noticably warmer than yesterday,so my fingers weren't the least bit cold while clicking.
The Mallard ducks are finding the bay over the past couple days and I observed a Drake paddling his feet and comically bobbing up and down .... As I watched this unusual activity, his mate, Ms Mallard searched the water under his feet for small clams which you'll see in her beak. I had no idea that Mallards enjoyed this delicacy ... Yummy, fresh Pat Bay clams ! :) Have a terrific week... Terry :)
This photo taken just before dark yesterday evening ... I met a fellow visiting here from Venice... Seen here capturing Heron Silhuetes @ 5 PM.
