Sky Watch Friday- More Middle Creek Waterfowl

Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area provides many photographic opportunities for the nature photographer. Morning activity peaks shortly before sunrise until shortly thereafter as geese and a wide variety of ducks head for the surronding fields and ponds for the morning's feeding activity.

Canon 40D: 70-200mmF2.8L

The early bird springs to mind here Willard.. I have not been able to get out early for a while due to my health so it is great to see this through your eyes and read your posts.

I love those clouds with their colours and shapes. Great Skywatch

All the best for this weekend

That photo with the birds with the colored sky is wonderful. Did you see in the PA magazine they are looking for wildlife photos for their contest? It's in the new edition. I seen it today at Barnes & Noble and thought of you and your brother.
