The game is to open the 4th folder and post the 4th photo. Well I got lucky. My 4th folder, the 4th photograph was this shot of a flock of Scaup in flight. This photograph was taken March 29, 2008 while the early spring migration of waterfowl was passing through my area.

Photographing these birds is only a spring game for at that time the lake is quiet except for a few fishermen. During the fall migration the waterfowl hunting seasons are in full swing with a number of hunters with decoy spreads working the lake shore.

With the cold weather we have been having lately I find myself beginning to yearn for the open water and the first flights of spring travelers stopping by.

Salty: What a beautiful capture of the ducks in flight. You certainly showed a neat photo for the tag.

I'll see if the boat is still floating in the Spring. We still have February weather to go.

Even here in the South, where we are relatively free from Old Man Winter's grasp, it will be nice to have a little warmer weather soon.
