I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise on Sunday morning. I noticed an interesting cloud formation on the way. As it turned out the sunrise was almost nonexistent with very little colour due to the thick cloud. But I think that the clouds are interesting.
I was actually set up in a portable hide (blind) at a Rabbit warren waiting for a Red Fox to show up and start hunting Rabbits. The Fox never appeared but I noticed the early morning light sparkling on the dew drops on the grass seed heads. As I didn’t want to leave the hide in case the Fox made an appearance I was working on compositions from the lens opening and using a mix of telephoto lenses and teleconverters for different framings.
Week 18 was originally titled two ducks but the head and neck of the leading bird makes me think that they could be a Grebe species. They were out on Colpoy’s Bay and silhouetted by the rising sun. The photo is more about the light and ripples on the water, the birds are there for context.
