PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/07/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2014 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

American Wigeon

(Anas americana)

Where: Albuquerque, NM

Notes: I chose this picture out of the group because I liked the action and wing position of this preening male Wigeon. The soft light from the mostly overcast skies, allowed just enough light to illuminate the green iridescence on the duck's head. The creamy cap above his bill is easily overexposed and the reduced light helped prevent that from happening as well. This is another shot from a recent trip to New Mexico. That adventure came as a gift from my loving, supportive wife and best friend, Lori (www.helemai.net). I feel truly Blessed to have such good friends, both old and new, and to have been placed in a position to capture a few decent images on that trip to the desert southwest. Exposure to nature brightens my spirit in ways that almost nothing else can. When I think back, this has been true ever since I was a child. Coincidence? I think not. I contribute that renewal of my spirit to what ever Greater Power there is out there in the universe. Call it what you will, but for me, it is undeniable. So all I have to say is, "Thanks!" If perhaps your spirit needs a lift, I'd suggest immersing yourself in nature. That is what works for me.
