This morning my longtime fishing buddy Paul arrived well before dawn in preparation for a day of fishing on Raystown Lake. The lake is an hour's drive from my home so by the time we reached it the sun was already topping the mountains surrounding the man-made impoundment. Keeping the camera handy proved worthwhile when we sighted this Mallard hen and her new family cruising along the shoreline.
We didn't locate Raystown Ray but I couldn't resist passing my camera to Paul after pulling this nice crappie from its underwater lair.
