  3. We've had snow today & gray skies for several days, I am beginning to wonder if I'll still know how to use my camera when the sun finally does shine.

    Lovely Scaup Bob.

  6. Great images of the Lesser Scaup, Bob.

    Great memories with Steppenwolf's 'the Pusher'. I had it on the LP of the soundtrack of Easy Rider, which I bought the day after I saw the film. My original was stolen in a burglary ony a few weeks after I'd bought it. I bought a replacement and, to my disappointment, the last track - 'The Ballad of Easyrider' - no longer had the sound effects from the end of the film on it. Apparently the film company demanded it was removed from the album (breach of copyright) almost immediately the album was first released. I guess my original would be worth something now! Still got the replacement, however!

  17. I'm always amazed by the names birds are given...Lesser, or Common...when as evidenced in your gorgeous photos they deserve names like Most or Best or Unique...
