Crops & Clips: Water, snow and sky

My weekly potpourri gathered from the archives features an unsettled sky, a sun-struck egret, a vigilant hawk, a retreating coyote and a handsomely coiffured duck with family.  

CRITTERS: Mom doesn't think they are ugly ducklings

How would this be possible with such a handsome Dad? Well, I see he spends a lot of time on his hairdo!

  5. Super post from start to finish. Such an interesting duck, the head plumage or markings are so unique. Wonderful shots of the Harrier and Coyote. Very cool looking clouds and a lovely reflection.

  6. I came for the "good fences" but got lost in looking at all the other photos too. That duck is the single ugliest critter I've seen in a while. Maybe ever. LOL

  20. Seeing an egret in the distance across water was a favorite of mine as a child. Beautiful reflections in the water. The Muscovy duck and her ducklings is so cute too. I'm still wanting to see how the babies are transformed into adults.
