You need an amphibious car.

Maybe there should be a “Road Closed” sign before you get to this point.

One autumn morning.

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Story.

I was down at the Lake Huron shoreline at sunrise and found some juvenile Red Knot (Calidris canutus) on autumn migration.

At sunrise one feeds and one watches me.

Week 9. Splish, splash.

Week 8 was ice on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise. A week later and almost all the ice has either thawed or been blown out of the bay by the wind. I went down to Colpoy’s Bay and discovered that the waves were breaking on the shoreline and forming icicles on a section. By the time I had finished photographing the action the tripod leg closest to the water was coated with ice and frozen to the stones it was standing on.
