Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

American Wigeon – Marsh Ducks (Dabblers)

Male American Wigeon.

Ray doesn't like how the reflected white water detracts from the duck. I think he's learning more than I am!

Peterson’s Field Guide – Western Birds says the American Wigeon when swimming rides high and picks at the water like a coot. It’s nicknamed “Baldpate” because of its shining white crown.
