  14. My duck ID skills are lacking unfortunately Bob! Have you tried some of the ID sites like iSpot? I've used it a couple of times to help identify some stone flies I found along a river. May be useful - but other than that, gorgeous shots, as always. Love the expression on the duck's face. - Tasha

    1. I think that it was a female, the people who write about them, never show the female, bad pratice.

  26. Coming late so f you hadn't been so honest, I would have thought you'd known all along. But I had to smile at your disclaimer , because that lovely lady has helped me and I am sure many others. It's an honor and a help to me as a perennial amateur to know you and Margaret and all the other birders/photographers who have so much knowledge and talent.

  37. My friend Bob,

    The sky is your look
    The rain is your travel
    The sun is your art

    Through your photos
    my mind can travels
    miles away from my look

    And I love Ry Cooder and all the songs you give to us.
