Sunday Nature Stills – 01/19/2020

After traveling for almost two months, we took a break and camped for a week on the bank of a small glacial pond on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska.  It was a beautiful spot with dynamic weather and lots of rain.  It was nice to have the time to watch the activity of the wildlife in the area.  This is a female Barrow’s Goldeneye that was very protective of the pond.  The duck couple was nesting along the banks of the pond and were on alert the whole time we were there.  The day before I took this photograph, we watched this female make a huge fuss at a moose that was getting too close to her ducklings.  Sometimes it’s nice to spend an extended time in one place.

  1. These are both such clear, beautiful photos! I love the reflection of the mountains on the pond, and I can zoom in on the duck and really get a good, detailed look at her.
