Weekend at Mullet Lake

Thousands of Ducks Overhead

Thousands of Ducks Overhead

Got there early Saturday morning, and again had the park to myself. Got a couple of sunrise shots, spotted a wood stork and my hawk’s companion showed up. I was so excited to see both hawks on the same tree I almost forgot to take pictures.

My goal was to nab a couple of sunrise shots for the booklet (see above). Both pictures taken with my wide angle zoom. The ducks were amazing. There was a constant stream of them for at least 5 minutes. Not sure where they were headed other than north.

This park is so beautiful it will be difficult for me to find the next spot for the book. On Monday I hiked Geneva Wilderness Area loop and I’m not sure if it’s the right time of year for it. It is mostly uplands and while I spotted several birds, the area was not appealing to me. I will have to return later in the winter and see if the atmosphere changes. I was so uninspired that I haven’t even downloaded the pics.

Sunday I spent at UCF arboretum – that will be the subject of another post.
