I am posting this to show everyone how easy these birds blend into the environment. I took these photos at Lake Murray in La Mesa, California from about twenty or thirty feet away from the birds with a 50mm lens;
Click on the photos to enlarge them.
My blog about my interaction with the birds I love and see most often. Warning: This is not a scientific blog, there is some mild (limited) anthropomorphism. I believe animals and people aren't too different, emotionally. Enjoy!
